The Bibliography of British and Irish History
Online (BBIH) a partnership between the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), the Royal Historical Society (RHS) and Brepols Publishers, provides bibliographic data on historical writing dealing with the British Isles, the British Empire and the Commonwealth, from 55 BC to the present. It also contains Irish publications from 1935 to 2006 (partial year) from the Irish History Online project. It is the successor to the Royal Historical Society Bibliography of British and Irish History, available online from 2002 to 2009. The complete database now contains nearly 560,000 records, and is updated three times a year, usually in February, June and October. To provide a secure long-term future for the Bibliography, the RHS and IHR entered into a partnership with Brepols Publishers at the end of 2009 to continue the Bibliography as a subscription service under a new title: Bibliography of British and Irish History
(BBIH). The Bibliography also acquired a new interface incorporating several new features, including auto-complete lists and enhanced export facilities, as well as offering considerably faster searching.
