What is MLA?

The Modern Language Association International Bibliography (MLA) is an index to journal articles, books, and more, published on modern languages, literatures, folklore, film, and linguistics.  In 2000, the database began coverage on the history, theory, and practice of teaching language, literature, rhetoric and composition at the college level, including professional and administrative issues. Works may address the teaching of any modern language and any literature; those on rhetoric and composition may address discourse studies and the teaching and learning of written communication in any language.

The database, published by the Modern Language Association, covers 1926 to the present. 

The index includes scholarly research in more than 4,000 journals and series, relevant monographs, working papers, proceedings, bibliographies, and other formats.

Go to the library’s Databases by Title page: http://www2.stetson.edu/library/databases.php

In the alphabetical listing of all databases, click on MLA (Language and Literature)

To find a list of the journals indexed in MLA, click on “MLA Directory of Periodicals” located along the top of the search screen.  The Directory provides addresses, advertising rates, and information about submission for publication.  This option provides directory information ONLY.  It does not provide information about individual articles within the journals.

NOTE: You must be connected to Stetson's Network in order to access any of the Library's subscription databases (MLA is a subscription database). If you are not working from a campus-connected computer, you will have to enter the network through a proxy server.
