MLA Bibliography Now on GALE Platform

MLA Bibliography Now on GALE Platform

Posted March 6, 2012

The MLA Bibliography (previous accessed through EBSCO) is now available through the GALE platform, making it searchable alongside the Literature Resource Center. The MLA Bibliography is a popular database for finding articles dealing with literature topics in scholarly books and journals. In moving our subscription to the GALE platform, we've made it easier to find more information on literary topics with a single search.

Search for a keyword, a person, or a work. Results are sorted into tabs for:

  • criticisms,
  • biographies,
  • overviews,
  • reviews,
  • primary sources,
  • multimedia, and
  • MLA Bibliography results.

There are embedded links to full text resources, as well as a Get It! Trent button for linking to our online journals and searching TOPCAT (for book chapters).

GALE also has a mobile app for accessing all GALE databases on the go. (iPad, iPhone, iPod, Android)
