Produced by the Modern Language Association (MLA), the electronic version of the bibliography dates back to the 1920s and contains millions of citations from journals & series, as well as book publishers. The indexed materials coverage is international, and includes titles and full-text links from JSTOR and Project Muse, Wiley-Blackwell and Taylor & Francis. This resource also contains hundreds of thousands of subject names and terms.

Broad Subject Coverage for Comprehensive Research
Subjects within the MLA International Bibliography consist of literature, language and linguistics, folklore, film, literary theory & criticism, dramatic arts, as well as the historical aspects of printing and publishing. Listings on rhetoric and composition and the history, theory and practice of teaching language and literature are also included.

MLA Thesaurus
In addition to the bibliography, the database includes the MLA Directory of Periodicals, the association’s proprietary thesaurus used to assign descriptors to each record in the bibliography, and a proprietary, searchable directory of noted authors’ names, with links to brief descriptive notes.

You may find video tutorials for using MLA on the Ebscohost platform here: https://www.youtube.com/user/ModernLanguageAssoc/search?query=ebsco

Consortium Luxembourg is pleased announcing the trial for two journals of the Royal Society: Proceedings of the Royal Society A & B.

Proceedings A has an illustrious history of publishing pioneering and influential research articles across the entire range of the physical and mathematical sciences. These have included Maxwell’s electromagnetic theory, the Braggs’ first account of X-ray crystallography, Dirac’s relativistic theory of the electron, and Watson and Crick’s detailed description of the structure of DNA. The journal publishes research papers, as well as short reviews containing original and interesting new ideas.

Proceedings B is the Royal Society’s flagship biological research journal, dedicated to the rapid publication and broad dissemination of high-quality research papers, reviews and comment and reply papers. The scope of the journal is diverse and is especially strong in organismal biology. Currently, it is particularly strong in ecology in the widest sense, and behavioural and evolutionary biology. Proceedings B also publishes significant numbers of papers in health and disease, palaeontology and biomechanics, as well as molecular biology, neuroscience and cognition, where these bear upon organismal biology.

You will find Proceedings A and Proceedings B as well as further journals of the Royal Society which are available open access on findit.lu. Simply click the “locate” tab in the e-journals area and choose “Royal Society” as vendor.

If you want to access both journals directly, please use the following links:
