New databases this fall for English

Great news for scholars and students of English literature and language!  We have recently switched content providers (from Gale to Proquest) for the Modern Language Association (MLA) International Bibliography; take a look at it’s new look and interface.  This index is considered the leading annual bibliography of books and articles of modern languages and literatures, literary theory and criticism, dramatic arts, linguistics, folklore, and other related topics.

In addition, we now have access to Literature Online (LION), which includes over 350,000 texts of literature as well as a vast collection of criticism and reference, such as the Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature (ABELL).  Other resources included in LION are:  The full nine-volume Bibliography of American Literature, the full text Editions and Adaptations of Shakespeare, the W.B. Yeats collections, and Twentieth Century American Poetry, which includes 500 volumes of modern and contemporary writing.

You can still access Literature Resources from Gale for critical essays and author biographies from Contemporary Authors, Dictionary of Literary Biography, and Gale literary criticism series.
