MLA International Bibliography - Types of Content

MLA International Bibliography indexes the following document types: books, book chapters, journal articles, and websites. If you weren't already aware, you may be interested to know that the contents are not always scholarly/academic in nature. I recently learned from a staff member at MLA that:
"...MLAIB  indexes all material that we feel are of interest to scholars even if they are written in non-peer reviewed material or are geared for a more general audience. Almost any work is considered as long as it falls within our scope...."

To limit your search to scholarly/academic articles, tick the box next to Peer-Reviewed on the search screen.
