Modern Language Association International Bibliography

The Modern Language Association, MLA, is the principal professional organization for scholars of language & literature. The MLA Bibliography database contains almost 3 million citations. This database is NOT a full-text database so you may need to use Interlibrary Loan to request full-text access to some of the articles you find. 

This is a top database for finding critical articles, books, and dissertations covering the fields of: language, literature, linguistics, folklore, film, literary theory & criticism, and dramatic arts. Users who want to master using this database should complete the free online course below to learn more about the advanced searching options available in this database. 

If you are looking for articles on a specific text or specific author, using the "Browse Works" or "Browse Authors" search tools in the blue bar at the top of the page can help you do a really focused search. If you don't find results that way, then try a regular keyword search.
