The Nottinghamshire Bibliography Online Project


The first comprehensive bibliography of Nottinghamshire history was compiled by Michael Brook and published by the Thoroton Society in 2002. Brook’s bibliography includes 8707 items relating to “books (and discrete portions of books), pamphlets, periodical articles, and academic theses at doctoral and master’s levels” published before 1998. The printed version of the Bibliography has been converted to a downloadable PDF (available on the Thoroton Society website) that is searchable at a basic level but cannot be easily updated.

Aims and objectives

The aim of the Nottinghamshire History Online Bibliography project is to provide a single web-based means of access to all bibliographic sources for the history of the city of Nottingham and county of Nottinghamshire, including published books, journal articles and unpublished theses and ‘grey literature’.
