Modern Language Association International Bibliography now available as a data source within Elements

15th December 2016

We’re very happy to announce that the MLA International Bibliography is now available as a data source within Elements. One of the most-requested non-STEM data sources within our user community, MLA and Symplectic decided to collaborate for the benefit of our mutual (and future) clients. The feature was introduced in our September release of Elements (v5.1.2), and further extends its harvesting capabilities beyond STEM subjects.

Founded in 1883, the Modern Language Association is an organisation of scholars of language and literature in the United States. It operates the highly-regarded database known as the MLA International Bibliography, which indexes over 2.7 million scholarly records in those fields around the world. Containing information on books, journals and websites relating to all forms of human communication, such as literature, linguistics, dramatic arts, folklore, pedagogy, printing and publishing, the Bibliography will provide a welcome data feed for subscribing institutions involved in the humanities.

More information on the MLA is available here. Elements users can also view the release notes for v5.1.2 on the support site.
