MLA Database: What It Is and How to Search It: Using Your Search History

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.

Using Your Search History

You may combine previous searches by clicking on the “Search History.” (See screen shot below.)


Check the searches you wish to combine and check the Boolean (logical) operator you wish to use to combine them (“and,” “or,” “not”).  Click on “Add.”


Or type “s” (without the quotation marks) and the search number in a search box. 


You can use Boolean operators to combine previous searches or use previous searches with new terms.  Examples: s3 AND s14;  s5 OR s7; s2 and meter
