Connected Histories – a new search engine for history

The JISC-funded Connected Histories project, a collaboration between the IHR, the universities of Sheffield and Hertfordshire and King’s College London, will create a federated search facility for a wide range of distributed digital resources relating to early modern and 19th-century British history. To be launched in March 2011, it will provide access to 14 major databases of primary source texts, containing more than 412 million words, plus 469,000 publications, 3.1 million further pages of text, 87,000 maps and images, 254,000 individuals in databases, and over 100 million name instances.
