New records

This update contains nearly 5800 new records, of which just over half relate to publications of 2008 and 2009. We are continuing the policy, introduced at our last update, of including records as soon as we have confirmed that a book or article has been published and relates to British or Irish history. These records carry provisional indexing which has not yet been checked by our team of academic section editors (such records can be identified by a note: 'Record not yet reviewed by RHS section editor').

Move to new server

New search box on browsable indexes

On the browsable indexes of names, journal or series titles and indexing terms we have replaced the A-Z links with a search box that you can use to search for a particular term in the list.

Other news

We plan to carry out the next data upgrade later in the spring.

New records, new download in EndNote format, links to online text and services and other news

In response to comments from users, we have adopted a new policy towards releasing new records from the RHS database. We are including records as soon as we have confirmed that a book or article has been published and relates to British or Irish history. These records carry provisional indexing which has not yet been checked by our team of academic section editors (such records can be identified by a note: 'Record not yet reviewed by RHS section editor').
