And as always, Gale’s MLAIB still provides: • Fully Searchable MLADirectory of Periodicals • Fully searchable MLA Thesaurus/Subject Guide • Integrated searching with LRC, LitFinder, Scribner Writers, Twayne’s Authors, GVRL • Excellent handling of diacritical marks and “punctuated” names (D. H. Lawrence)
