The MLA International Bibliography is a subject index for books, articles and websites published on modern languages, literatures, folklore, and film. It is produced by the Modern Language Association (MLA), an organization dedicated to the study and teaching of language and literature. The electronic version of the Bibliography dates back to 1925 and contains over 2 million citations from more than 4,400 periodicals (including peer-reviewed e-journals) and 1,000 book publishers. It is compiled by the staff of the MLA Department of Bibliographic Information Services with the cooperation of more than 100 contributing bibliographers in the United States and abroad. Such international coverage is represented by literature from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America, and while the majority of records are from English-language publications, at least sixty other languages are represented including French, Spanish, German, Russian, Portuguese, Norwegian, and Swedish.

Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies is the descriptor frequently used for the area covered by our Division in the library. We collect materials from and/or about Eastern Europe, Mongolia, Modern Greece, Russia and all the Soviet successor states including those in Transcaucasia and Central Asia, in languages used by those countries. The Division selects, orders, catalogs and maintains these materials. We also select materials in West European languages about countries in our area of coverage, and they are cataloged elsewhere in the library.
Ours is one of the country's largest such collections, one that is especially strong in languages, literatures, history, social sciences, art and bibliography. The best-represented countries are Russia, Poland, the Yugoslav successor states (especially Bosnia and Hercegovina), and the Czech Republic/Slovakia. Notable holdings include, in all formats, the Greek American experience, Russian revolutionary movements, Russian and East European dissident writings, modern Armenian history and literature, the Silver Age of Russian Literature, Southeast European travel literature, and serial publications of the East European academies. A current priority is development of our Central Asian, Armenian and Modern Greek holdings. Our acquisitions are mostly purchased, but we also receive books as gifts or on exchange with peer institutions in the U.S. and abroad. The Slavic Division also participates in consortia and federal programs for resource creation, preservation, and acquisition.
Information concerning our staff can be found on the Area Programs home page.
