TRIAL: Bibliography of British and Irish History

We have a trial of the Bibliography of British and Irish History until 4th February 2010.

To access this trial go to
http://www.brepolis.net.ezproxy.liv.ac.uk/, click on the Enter Databases button and then choose Bibliography of British and Irish History.

The Bibliography of British and Irish History provides bibliographic data on historical writing dealing with the British Isles, and with the British Empire and Commonwealth, during all periods for which written documentation is available - from 55BC to the present. It is the successor to the Royal Historical Society Bibliography of British and Irish History, available online from 2002 to 2009.

The Bibliography provides links to online catalogues such as COPAC and it provides links to online text where available through our SFX link resolver (find it @ liverpool). This will also help you to find if we hold the items in our printed collections.


After using the Bibliography of British and Irish History please leave your comments below. You can choose the anonymous option to comment without needing to have a Blogger account, but it helps if you include your name in your feedback so that we can follow up on comments.

This bibliography is absolutely ESSENTIAL for any British historian and history student. It was previously freely available from the RHS but now requires a subscription: whatever it costs, please subscribe.

I entirely endorse Dr Campbell's comment. I use this resource on an almost daily basis for research and direct dissertation students to it constantly.

It's a disgrace that this is no longer freely accessible. It is an indispensible tool for research and teaching. Please subscribe.

This is a very useful tool, and vital for research.
