Donors to the
American Friends at the forty-five dollar ($45.00) level or above may use
the Institute's facilities in the coming year, receive discounts on select Institute publications and conferences, and email announcements/invitations
to events. (The American Friends of the IHR [London], Inc. is approved by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service for receiving tax-deductible charitable contributions.) Graduate students may join us for a donation of $30 annually.
For an additional $30.00, members may opt to have full access to the premium content on the IHR's British History Online (BHO). The BHO provides free access to over 500 volumes of valuable materials (Commons and Lords Journals, Victory County History volumes, Statutes of the Realm, etc.) and is well worth supporting. The $30 added contribution brings American Friends of the IHR additional access to the "premium" content of the site (Calendars of State Papers, etc.) which have been scanned, and double re-keyed and converted to XML format for high accuracy and cross-searching. This is an ongoing project and each year brings access to many new volumes. Those who choose this option will be emailed an access code that will be good for the calendar year (1 Jan. to 31 Dec.) and will be renewable. [The total on the check must include a donation as well as the BHO subscription (thus $75 or more for regular members) and BHO must be checked on the form for this option.]
At the beginning of this year ( 2013), we began offering AFIHR members annual subscriptions to Royal Historical Society’s Bibliography of British and Irish History for $55, a savings of approximately two-thirds. Subscriptions are for the calendar year that begins January 1 and that the IHR needs to provide Brepols a list of AFIHR members who have opted to buy the subscription by mid-November. [The total on the check must include a donation as well as the BBIH subscription (thus $100 or more for regular members; $130 or more if selecting BHO as well) and BBIH must be checked on the form for this option.]
Next time you visit the IHR Library, simply identify
yourself as an American Friend!
