The digital library of primary and secondary sources for the history of Britain, from the Middle Ages to c.1900. To date, the project has digitised more than 1,000 volumes, including such central resources as the Victoria County History of England, the Journals of the Houses of Commons and Lords and The National Archives' Calendars (including the State Papers Domestic, Foreign and Colonial, the Treasury Books and Papers and the Letters and Papers of Henry VIII).

This information service aims to support all those interested in the electronic publication of historical resources and, in particular, those planning a digitisation project. These pages detail British History Online's work, staff and unique benefits. The IHR has recently been awarded funding by the Arts and Humanities Research Council to complete the digitisation of The National Archives' Calendars of State Papers.
