Online directoryWe are pleased to announce that a searchable edition of the Directory of History Departments and Organizations is now available online.

The new version is intended to make the Directory more useful for historians, administrators, and anyone interested in the history profession. The online Directory has information on over 820 history departments and historical institutions, and nearly 20,000 historians and history specialists. But with the online version you will also be able to identify specialists in particular subjects and from particular schools; develop benchmark groups of departments with similar degrees, tuition levels, and numbers of students and faculty; and you can also look up the holdings and programs of more than 100 historical organizations. The online edition should also provide the most current information, as departments and organizations will be able to come in and update their entries throughout the year.

Please give the online Directory a trial run and email us to let us know what you think about it, and how it might be improved. We look forward to hearing from you. We will continue to develop the Directory in the coming years, and hope to improve the connections with the related History Doctoral Programs information, so your comments and suggestions will play an important part in shaping future developments.
