Overview

Literature Online is the leading online resource for the study and teaching of literature in English. It is a fully integrated service that combines the texts of over 357,000 works of literature with huge resources of criticism and reference. Literature Online is the only resource that lets users search across the two leading literary indexes - MLA and the Annual Bibliography of Language and Literature (ABELL) - and link directly to literary criticism and reference from our extensive collection of full-text literature journals.

Now an add-on module of the MLA International Bibliography which provides over 2 million citation records of books and articles covering literary criticism, modern languages, folklore, and linguistics has been added to Literature Online. With this new MLA add-on module, users will benefit from full integration with the database and features such as:

  • Immediate access from MLA citations to full-text journal articles in Literature Online
  • Access to full-text articles via Open URL and JSTOR links
  • Integration with the extensive library of primary works, criticism, and reference sources in Literature Online

This integration makes Literature Online the only resource that allows single-point searching of the two leading literary indexes—MLA and the Annual Bibliography of Language and Literature (ABELL). Researchers will be able to cross-search these bibliographies by keyword, title keyword, subject author/reviewer, publication details, journal, and publication year.
