IHR Digital

IHR Digital brings together historians, editors, project managers, bibliographers, web designers and developers. We offer a range of services for the academic history community - including digitization, skills training and options for digital sustainability.

Our historical research projects are undertaken in partnership with academics, archivists, librarians and museum curators, as well as professional bodies and learned and historical societies.

We're keen to hear from historians and researchers who would like to work collaboratively with digital resources on historically-informed projects.


Our flagship digitization projects include the History of Parliament Online and British History Online (BHO) - a digital library of printed and born-digital resources. We welcome proposals for new BHO content. Recent projects include the 'Online Directory of Parliamentarian Army Officers'.

If you have sources you'd like to make available online, please contact BHO editor Jonathan Blaney.

Digital sustainability

A customised service transforming websites and databases into a sustainable format. We use the open source Drupal Content Management System, allowing you the freedom to edit and maintain your resource.

Recent projects include the Records of London's Livery Companies Online (ROLLCO) and the Ruth First Papers.

Digital sustainability is also central to British History Online. Recent projects include the 'Court of Chivalry, 1634-40'.

Contact Danny Millum to find out more.

Historical research and engagement

Collaborative, funded research projects to study the past; and the challenges and opportunities posed by digital history today. We are interested in historical research with interested partners from a variety of backgrounds. Our recent projects include a collaboration with Senate House Library on their Radical Voices season.

Please contact Philip Carter to discuss research ideas.
