Welcome to Irish History Online
Irish History Online is an authoritative listing (in progress) of what has been written about Irish history from earliest times to the present. It lists writings on Irish history published since the 1930s, with selected material published in earlier decades. It currently contains over 85,500 bibliographic records (February 2014).
Irish History Online includes bibliographic information on books and pamphlets, articles from journals published in Ireland or internationally, and chapters from books of essays, including Festschriften and conference proceedings.
Searches can be made by author/editor, by title or keyword from title, by subject, by journal title or series, or by publication details. Irish History Online is an essential resource for the study of Irish history at any level, and is free of charge to users.
Irish History Online is now hosted and managed by the Royal Irish Academy Library (Dublin). Irish History Online is compiled, edited and regularly updated by a small team of voluntary editors and compilers.
Irish History Online is part of a European network of sixteen historical bibliographies from fourteen countries.
A total of 4,313 new entries were added to the Irish History Online listings during 2013. These included 2,007 journal articles, 1,261 monographs or collective volumes, and 1,045 articles in books.
At the beginning of January 2014, the database included details of 910 items published in 2013; 1,532 items published in 2012; 1,684 items published in 2011, and 1,872 items published in 2010. Details of further recently published items will be added during 2014.
