Why is BBIH useful for students?
The Bibliography of British and Irish History (BBIH) is a powerful resource for getting to grips with a new area of historical research. BBIH provides detailed information on more than 605,000 books, collections, journal articles and book chapters published during the 20th century and up to to the current year.
The Bibliography is therefore a quick and easy way to get a picture of what's been written on a particular topic, theme, person or place. This is of great value when studying a new subject or preparing an undergraduate or graduate thesis, especially when it comes to identifying and assessing the existing literature
BBIH covers the history of Britain and Ireland, from the Roman occupation to the present day; this means not just the British Isles, but also the British empire, Commonwealth and global histories.
