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.

To browse 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.’
