There are over 20,000 books and pamphlets on Wiltshire, most of which are difficult to obtain except in 3 specialist libraries. We have begun a programme of digitising some of the more important books on the county and have completed 76 books, amounting to nearly 30,000 pages of text. We will be gradually adding these to our web site.

These have been scanned as images and each page has been captioned, so that you can use keyword searches on place-name, personal name, subject, or event. You are therefore able to read a book page by page, or search only for topics that interest you.

There are two searches available:
