How do I browse the BHL collection?

You can browse the BHL’s collection by Title, Author, Date, Collection, or Contributor.

  • Browsing by Title will provide an alphabetical list of all titles in the BHL collection — ignores leading English articles such as The, A, An, etc.; does not ignore non-English leading articles such as La, Die, etc.
  • Author browse allows you review an alphabetized list of all creators in the BHL corpus – choose the starting letter of the Last Name, then scroll or search within the results using your browser’s Find feature.
  • Browsing by Collection allows you to explore a variety of title subsets curated around a particular topic or theme.
  • When browsing by Contributor you are able to view subsets of items grouped according to the institution that contributed them to the BHL collection.

Browse pages display 250 results at a time. You can page through the results using the “Next” and “Prev” controls.

To browse each page more effectively, use your browser’s Find features (Generally Ctrl+F for PCs and Command+F for Macs). This will allow you to search within the browse ‘results.’
