The MLA International Bibliography is focused on modern languages and literature, containing over 2.8 million records.
Using the MLA International Bibliography begins with a search. The bibliography offers many search options, which can be selected and combined to tailor the results to the researcher’s specific needs. These options include:
• literary authors and their works (e.g., “Achebe, Chinua”; “Things Fall Apart”)
• subject terms, including people, characters, places, periods, movements, and subject matter (e.g., “Wordsworth, William,” “Lake District,” “1700-1899,” “Romanticism,” and “landscape”)
• titles of articles, books, and other scholarly works indexed in the bibliography
• academic authors and their works (e.g., “Butler, Judith”; “Gender Trouble: Feminism and the Subversion of Identity”)
• language of publication (e.g., “French language”)
• date of publication (e.g., “2014,” “2005-2015”)
• limit to peer-reviewed journal articles
A searchable list of all the subject terms in the bibliography and their related terms can be found in the MLA Thesaurus, included with every subscription.
