Navigating the MLA Bibliography: Performance across Vendor Platforms
Soules, Aline; Golomb, Liorah
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v21 n2 p141-162 2009
In this article, the authors compared the MLA International Bibliography database (MLAIB) across five vendor platforms to determine how and why seemingly comparable searches produced varying results. A number of tests were conducted using a variety of fields, terms, and parameters, and examples of results are provided. The authors' findings are designed to illustrate the impact of these differences on users, from undergraduates to faculty researchers, whether they work individually or collaboratively and regardless of the platform to which their institution subscribes. (Contains 8 figures and 8 tables.)
