Where We Are:

  • Rich selection of search indexes and limiters

  • Easy bookmarking

  • Clean, clear display


And as always, Gale’s MLAIB still provides:

  • Fully Searchable MLADirectory of Periodicals

  • Fully searchable MLA Thesaurus/Subject Guide

  • Excellent handling of diacritical marks and “punctuated” names (D. H. Lawrence)
