Available as a searchable online database of more than 2.8 million records and constantly updated by scholars in the field, the bibliography is used by academics and teachers around the world to find and share their work. Students at all levels rely on the bibliography to lead them to the journals, books, Web sites, and other publications they need to succeed in their research projects.

In addition to the bibliography, a subscription to the database includes

The directory includes publication details, submission requirements, and subscription information for thousands of journals and series in the MLA’s core subject areas.
