A one month trial to the Bibliography of British and Irish History (BBIH) is now available for students and staff of the University. The above link works on campus, there is also an off campus link for which you need your Raven password. Access is through Brepolis who already provide the University with access to the International Medieval Bibliography and other online resources in history.
The trial, which ends on Tuesday 15 December, has been established to evaluate the new service with a view to taking out an institutional subscription. There are notes for users familiar with the Royal History Society Bibliography.
This trial comes ahead of a change in how the RHS Bibliography and London’s Past Online are published which takes effect from 1 January 2010:
The Bibliography of British and Irish History Online (BBIH) has grown out of, and will supersede, the Royal Historical Society Bibliography of British and Irish History. Over the last ten years the RHS Bibliography has established itself as an essential tool for researchers at every level and throughout the world working on British and Irish history from the coming of the Romans to the present. Following the cessation of Arts and Humanities Research Council project funding at the end of 2009, a change has been introduced in order to secure the long-term future of the Bibliography. From now on, the BBIH will be published by Brepols Publishers and will change from a free access to a subscribed service, with institutional and individual subscriptions available.
