Literature Online now includes MLA Bibliography

Literature Online
The Literature Online (LION) database now includes content from the MLA International Bibliography, making this a single-point resource for the study and teaching of literature in English. The fully integrated service combines the texts of over 357,000 works of literature with huge resources of criticism and reference. It lets users search across the two leading literary indexes – MLA and the Annual Bibliography of Language and Literature (ABELL) – and link directly to literary criticism and reference from an extensive collection of full-text literature journals.

The MLA add-on module provides over 2 million citation records of books and articles covering literary criticism, modern languages, folklore, and linguistics. Users will now benefit from full integration with the database and features such as:

  • Immediate access from MLA citations to full-text journal articles in Literature Online
  • Access to full-text articles via Open URL and JSTOR links
  • Integration with the extensive library of primary works, criticism, and reference sources in Literature Online

Researchers will be able to cross-search these bibliographies by keyword, title keyword, subject author/reviewer, publication details, journal, and publication year. Give it a try; you won’t be disappointed!

Meet and converse with fellow students at the English Café

HelloInterested in meeting and having conversations with students from different cultures?

Want to learn about different cultures and meet students with diverse backgrounds?

Interested in improving your conversational (English) skills?

Peer consultants from the UST Center for Writing will be hosting the English Café at Coffee Bené in the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library, starting on Sunday, September 15th, 2013. The English Café is an effort to bring together both native and non-native English speakers and provide an opportunity to get to know one another in a casual setting.

Students interested in diversity in their UST community can learn about the different cultures present on campus. For non-native speakers, this is also a great opportunity to practice conversational skills.

In addition, peer consultants from the Center for Writing will be available to work with interested students on their assignments at any stage of the writing process.

The English Café will be held on Sunday evenings, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., at Coffee Bené in the library (by the leather room). Students should feel free to bring homework if they would like, and just hang out.
