Oxford to digitize Shakespeares Plays

The buzz is that, the University of Oxford has launched a fund raising initiative to digitize the First Folio 1623, i.e. First Edition of William Shakespeare's plays and make it available online. In May last First Folio was shown to noted Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan during his visit. It's very rarely shown to visitor due to worn conditions. The campaign by Oxfords Bodleian Library is called Sprint for Shakespeare. Nearly 1000 will be digitized and fund will also be raised to stabilise and protect the First Folio.
