Looking for students to send any feedback (positive or negative) about the possibility of changing the platform for MLA International Bibliography.
The Library has an ongoing subscription to MLA International Bibliography on the EBSCO platform. MLA is also available on Gale and ProQuest. We have requested trials so that all three can be compared. Though the platforms have different features, the core content should be the same.
The Modern Language Association (MLA) International Bibliography provides searchable access to bibliographic citations to journal articles, books, dissertations, and scholarly Web sites. It indexes materials from 1926 to the present in academic disciplines such as language, literature, folklore, linguistics, literary theory and criticism, and the dramatic arts. Coverage includes literature from all over the world – Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America. The MLA currently indexes more than 66,000 new items each year.
1. MLA International Bibliography (ProQuest) – trial
2. MLA International Bibliography (Gale) – trial
Please note, the Gale trial does not show all the features in the “full blown” version including:
Integrated searching and full text linking with Literature Resource Center and other Gale Literature resources
Find full text via Open URL link resolvers and links to library holdings and WorldCat
Live links to full-text journals in library subscriptions to Project MUSE and JSTOR
3. MLA International Bibliography (EBSCO) – what we have now
