New thematic lists

We have introduced new thematic lists that enable you to see, with a single click, what has been written about each of the English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh counties, and about twentieth-century British prime ministers. All of these searches can also be carried out from the Bibliography's Full Search form but we hope that the lists will be a useful short-cut, especially for users who are new to the Bibliography, and we plan to introduce more in the future if the response is positive.

Next data update

We plan to carry out the next data update later this month, when, as well as adding the usual new titles on British and Irish history, we will be adding about 400 new records relating to the Irish abroad from Irish History Online, many of them collected in North American libraries.
