Bibliography on Swiss History (BSH) available online

by


All issues of the Bibliography of Swiss History/Bibliographie de l’histoire suisse are now available online.

The BSH volumes 1913-1974 have been scanned, tagged, and uploaded. The digitization was carried out with the agreement of the Swiss History Association, publisher of the BSH since1957. Full text searching can be carried out across a selected range of volumes or across all volumes simultaneously.

The BSH volumes from 1975 onwards are available in the Bibliography on Swiss History database. Volumes 1975-1998 were re-catalogued in 2010 and integrated into the database. At present the years 1975-1998 and 1999-2010 do not have the same structure but they are being unified. So hopefully from spring 2012 the 87,000 bibliographic records in the BSH database will have the same structure.

For those interested in other historical national bibliographies there is the European Historical Bibliographies project.This projects lists fifteen bibliographies and provides a brief outline for each bibliography, its history, institutional background, contents and classification system, and mode of publishing – especially their online presence.
