Digital research, publishing and services are central to the IHR. Our work focuses on five key areas:
- Resources: for historical research, including British History Online and the Bibliography of British and Irish History.

- Publishing: History of Parliament and the Humanities Digital Library.
- Communication: Reviews in History and History Online, together with the IHR website.
- Teaching and training: introductions to digital humanities for graduate students.
IHR Digital brings together historians, editors, bibliographers, publishers, web designers and developers. Who we are.
