MLA International Bibliography is moving to EBSCO
On 26 June 2018, the editor of the MLA International Bibliography (MLAIB) announced that going forward EBSCO would be the single vendor for this resource and the accompanying MLA Directory of Periodicals (MLADP).
An overlap period where both the existing ProQuest version and the new EBSCO version of these databases are available simultaneously has begun. As of July 1, 2019, EBSCOhost will be the sole provider of these resources.
For all campuses; on the EBSCOhost platform –
MLA International Bibliography covers literature, language and linguistics, folklore, film, literary theory and 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.
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. It also provides a proprietary, searchable directory of noted authors’ names with links to brief descriptive notes.
As usual, the EBSCOhost MLA International Bibliography and Directory of Periodicals databases are cross-searchable with other EBSCOhost databases via the Choose Databases link at the top of the screen.
My Research users will need to download any saved searches and documents from their My Research account (ProQuest). Similar options for saving documents & searches are available via a My EBSCOhost account. Additionally, users wishing to retain any alerts will need to set these up in a My EBSCOhost account.
EBSCOhost has made several video tutorials on using the MLA International Bibliography on EBSCO available here: (https://connect.ebsco.com/s/article/MLA-International-Bibliography-on-EBSCOhost-Tutorials?language=en_US).
