The Bibliography of British and Irish History (BBIH) grew out of the Royal Historical Society Bibliography of British and Irish History. Since its publication in 2010, BBIH has superseded the RHS Bibliography as an essential tool for researchers working on British and Irish history at every level and throughout the world.

Aims and scope The Bibliography of British and Irish History Online 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. As well as providing details of publications, the bibliography offers links to online catalogues to help you find the items that it lists in research libraries in Britain and Ireland. It also provides links to online text where available. The bibliography is a guide to the work of historians – it does not contain original sources, unless they have been edited and republished by historians (except for a selection of key sources published before 1901). The bibliography lists books, articles in books and articles in journals. Over 750 journals and series are regularly checked. Material is included irrespective of place or language of publication. The BBIH is a vital tool for any university library and is invaluable for all levels of academic research, from undergraduate dissertations to the most advanced scholarship.
