Spotlight on… MLA International Bibliography


Now that we’re fully into the swing of the new term, it’s time to welcome back the Subject Librarians’ “Spotlight on…” series to this blog. This year, the “Spotlight on…” feature can be found in the open access computer zone in the library, and we hope that the new look displays are an improvement on the displays of the previous academic year. As before, “Spotlight on…” will cover a range of topics from information about resources to essential study skills such as referencing your work.

The current “Spotlight on…” features the MLA International Bibliography. The MLA International Bibliography, published by the Modern Langauge Association (MLA) “indexes books, articles and dissertations published on modern languages, literatures, folklore, and linguistics, providing coverage from 1926 to the present”. With such a significant date range covered, it is clear that this is an important resource for anyone studying in the field of literature. Also included in the MLA International Bibliography is the MLA Thesaurus and MLA Dictionary of Periodicals which details over 5,000 journals.

If you wish to use the MLA International Bibliography, login to OpenAthens via the library website, go to Databases to find the link ,or alternatively look under the relevant subject resources pages. On the following page after you have clicked the link, you will see a button with ‘proceed’. Click this button, then on the following page, find MLA International Bibliography at the end of the list of our Gale databases.

For further information about the MLA International Bibliography, or using any of our databases, don’t hesitate to get in touch with a librarian either in person at the Subject Help Desk in the Welcome Zone, by e-mail to or by phone on 01204 903404. Happy searching!
