London's Past Online: a bibliography of Greater London's history
London's Past Online was established to create a searchable online database of books, articles and other published material relating to the Greater London area from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day. The work was undertaken by a research team based at the Centre for Metropolitan History. Core data was taken from Heather Creaton's 'Bibliography of Printed Works on London History to 1939' (LAPL, 1994) and its unpublished supplement, and the bibliography from her 'Sources for the History of London 1939-45' (BRA, 1998). Relevant titles that appeared after these works were published were identified and added and the historical coverage extended. The total number of entries by the end of the project was around 36,000.
The resulting database is now published and updated as part of the Bibliography of British and Irish History.
The bibliography itself comprises an online publication.
