Royal Historical Society Bibliography

Royal Historical Society Bibliography [ ] - Keeping up with historical writings on Britain and Ireland can be a difficult matter. After all, the two nations have several thousand years of this type of written material, dating back to the Roman period. While those who work in British or Irish history may already know about this fine resource, others will be delighted to learn about the online Royal Historical Society bibliography website. Hosted by the Institute of Historical Research at the University of London, this online bibliography contains over 430,000 entries and the archive draws on hundreds of sources, including the British National Bibliography and the well-regarded "inside" article database. First-time visitors can start their search by indicating which area of the database they wish to start and then move to create a more detailed search that fits their specific needs. Overall, it's a formidable resource and one that covers everything from steel production in Sheffield to the life of Disraeli. >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2007.
