‘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 BBIH contains over 400,000 entries including articles in journals and essays in edited books. It currently indexes some 700 journal and series titles and it includes data from London's Past Online and Irish History Online. The Bibliography contains unpublished theses on London history, but unpublished theses are not otherwise included in the database.
