The database Bibliografía Histórica sobre la Ciencia y la Técnica en España has been updated

The Bibliografía Histórica sobre la Ciencia y la Técnica en España (Historical Bibliography on Science and Technology in Spain) has been updated under the direction of María Luz López Terrada and Julia Osca Lluch. The update of this database, developed by the Instituto de Historia de la Medicina y de la Ciencia López Piñero (López Piñero Institute for the History of Medicine and Science), has been funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.

The database brings together the largest number of works in the history of science and technology published in Spain or by Spanish authors all over the world. One of its main aims is to facilitate access to the information produced in Spain on the history of science and technology, as most of this research is local or regional and, therefore, it is not always present in national and international bibliographical databases.

Access to the new database is provided on-line for free (http://www.ihmc.uv-csic.es/buscador.php). The new version includes significant improvements, such as a wider coverage, more fields for every bibliographic record, different search options, and new possibilities to export and download data in a personalized way and in different formats (TXT, Word, Pdf or Excel).
