The Royal Historical Society Bibliography of British and Irish History has just released an update, adding 8,000 more records to the database, which now totals nearly 470,000 records. 3,150 of the new records relate to Irish history, most of them coming from Irish History Online. There are also new records on London history, including information about recently completed theses on London. See the Bibliography news page for more details.

This is the last RHS Bibliography data upgrade before the launch of the Bibliography of British and Irish History on 1 January 2010. This new service will be a partnership between the Royal Historical Society, the Institute of Historical Research and Brepols Publishers. Trial subscriptions are now available from Brepols Publishers: email: ; web:
