Aug. 1, 2013 – MLA International Bibliography has moved from the Gale platform to ProQuest. This VIVA-supplied database has been supplemented with additional ProQuest hosted literature databases.
MLA International Bibliography indexes citations to journal articles, books, dissertations, and scholarly web sites in disciplines such as language, literature, folklore, linguistics, literary theory and criticism, and the dramatic arts. Coverage includes literature from all over the world and includes citations to materials in many languages other than English. 1926-present.
We also have access to MLA International Bibliography from Chadwyck Healey . Both databases contain the same data, so choose a particular platform when you want to cross search other databases on that same platform. For instance, you may want to also search Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts from ProQuest and thus choose MLA on the ProQuest platform, or you may also want to search Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature (ABELL) from Chadwyck Healey and thus choose the Chadwyck platform.
Literature Online indexes citations, abstracts, and full text of journal articles, reviews and critiques, author biographies, and reference articles, plus full text works of poetry, drama, and prose, and multimedia recordings of works being read or performed. 1280-present.
