ENG 175: Literature and the Environment: Databases

Databases

zsr.wfu.edu/databases

Use online databases to locate short and subject-specific resources like journal articles, newspaper articles, book chapters, and more.

  • MLA (Modern Language Association International Bibliography)
    Indexes  scholarly journal articles, books, book chapters, conference proceedings, working papers, and doctoral dissertations on topics pertaining to literature, modern languages, dramatic arts, folklore, and linguistics.
    A typical search in the MLA would consist of the name of the literary author, then the title of the literary work, and finally terms that describe the theme under investigation, linked by "or."  See screen image below:
