Spotlight on the Collection - International Medieval Bibliography (new!)

Geoffrey Chaucer would be proud. International Medieval Bibliography (IMB) , a core resource in Medieval Studies, is now available online through the UVM Libraries. This is the leading interdisciplinary bibliography of the Middle Ages (450-1450), indexing periodicals, conference proceedings, essay collections and festschriften. The online version also provides integrated access to Bibliographie de Civilisation Médiévale (BCM), which indexes monographs. Users can choose to search both databases simultaneously or select only one of the two bibliographies. Coverage begins in 1957, but coverage date varies by publication. The Advanced search mode allows a more refined search, e.g., limiting by language, academic discipline, century, etc.
