The Folger Shakespeare Library is a prominent institution in Washington, DC with the world’s largest collection of materials related to Shakespeare and his works in and around the time of Shakespeare’s life. They partnered with The Web Development Group to reimagine the possibilities of an arts, scholastic, and research organization online. The partnership resulted in a wide variety of projects centering around the 400th
anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, including the main website, a tour of the First Folio, an online exhibition called Shakespeare Documented, the World Shakespeare Bibliography, a kiosk showcasing the First Folio, and more. As the technical lead, Mike coordinated with the Folger team to ensure projects built on WordPress and Drupal met the evolving needs of the Folger organization. The results allowed the organization to garner local and national media attention, serve thousands of visitors, and expand their resources for scholars, educators, students, theatre-goers, and more.
