British National Bibliography (BNB)

Product description

The British National Bibliography (BNB) records the publishing activity of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland and includes selective coverage of printed and electronic publications published since 1950, as well as information on new titles up to 16 weeks ahead of their announced publication date.

Due to falling demand and rising production costs, The British Library withdrew our British National Bibliography products at the end of 2011.


However, we have in place a number of FREE alternatives:

    • Search the whole of BNB
    • Download a list of the new titles added to BNB each week in PDF format
    • Users wanting our BNB records in MARC 21 can sign up for our free z39.50 service by contacting .
