Produced by the Modern Language Association (MLA), the electronic version of the bibliography dates back to the 1920s and contains millions of citations from journals & series, as well as book publishers. The indexed materials coverage is international, and includes titles and full-text links from JSTOR and Project Muse, Wiley-Blackwell and Taylor & Francis. This resource also contains hundreds of thousands of subject names and terms.

Broad Subject Coverage for Comprehensive Research
Subjects within the MLA International Bibliography consist of literature, language and linguistics, folklore, film, literary theory & criticism, dramatic arts, as well as the historical aspects of printing and publishing. Listings on rhetoric and composition and the history, theory and practice of teaching language and literature are also included.

MLA Thesaurus
In addition to the bibliography, the database includes the MLA Directory of Periodicals, the association’s proprietary thesaurus used to assign descriptors to each record in the bibliography, and a proprietary, searchable directory of noted authors’ names, with links to brief descriptive notes.
