Digital medievalists

The world's leading bibliography of the European Middle Ages is now available online. Founded in 1967 by the University's international medieval institute, the international medieval bibliography (IMB) includes over 300,000 records and grows by around 25,000 new entries each year. The bibliography is multilingual, and compiled by a worldwide network of fifty teams with regular coverage of 4,500 periodicals and over 5,000 general volumes.

"The online version greatly improves the search and index facilities for the IMB, although it will still be produced in print and on CD-ROM," said institute manager Joanna Watts. "The online IMB has been on trial since November, and has already had over 10,000 hits. This will certainly increase now the resource is more widely available."

For details about the international medieval bibliography, see their website at www.leeds.ac.uk/imi/imb/imb.htm

The online development has been in collaboration with Belgian publisher Brepols. See www.brepolis.net/imb_en.html
