Index to articles and books on modern languages, literatures, film, theatre, folklore, and linguistics.
The MLA International Bibliography indexes are critical in literary and language scholarship. They index literature, languages, linguistics, literary theory and criticism, dramatic arts, film, and folklore from over 4,400 journals and serials, as well as books, essay collections, working papers, proceedings, dissertations, and bibliographies. Approximately 45,000 records are added annually. Classical Greek and Latin literature are not covered. This database is produced by the Modern Language Association. The print edition counterpart to this database began in 1921.
The MLA Directory of Periodicals is now part of the MLA International Bibliography. Included is information on the periodicals that are indexed in the database, plus many more. The Directory of Periodicals data is updated annually.

The Oxford English Dictionary is the accepted authority on the evolution of the English language over the last millennium. The OED gives definitions, etymological analysis, and quotations to demonstrate the use of words in the English language over time.
The web-based version of the OED includes all information contained in the print counterpart, plus at least 1,000 new and revised entries each quarter.
