New records

This update includes nearly 5400 new records; about half of these cover publications of 2006-7.

1605 of the new records relate to Irish history. The bulk of these comprise the Writings on Irish History for 2003, provided by Irish History Online. The total number of records in the database relating to Irish history now amounts to 61,230; all these records are accessible using the Irish material only option on the RHS search menu, or through the Irish History Online search menu.

Although the London's Past Online project is no longer itself creating new records, new material on London history continues to be made available by the Royal Historical Society and (where titles concern the Irish in London) by Irish History Online. In addition, the current update includes records for recently completed theses on London history derived from information compiled by the Centre for Metropolitan History. 298 of the new records in this update relate to London and are available using the London material only option on the RHS search menu, or through the London's Past Online search menu.

The complete database, including titles from Irish History Online and London's Past Online, now contains nearly 433,000 records.

You can browse all the latest additions, including those from Irish History Online and London's Past Online, by broad period/country categories (based on the sections previously used for the printed RHS Annual Bibliography) by going to our browse page.

Other news

As in all updates, the indexing of many records initially published in the CD-ROM version of the RHS Bibliography has been improved.

We plan to carry out the next data upgrade in early 2008.
