For Novels or Books
The MLA International Bibliography (MLAIB) indexes the broadest range of resources about literature in all languages. If a literary study of your novel exists, you should find it here. It is not a full-text resource, meaning that you can only search the description of an article, rather than the text of the article. To get the full text of an article, click on “Find article @ UVa Libraries”, or look up the journal title in VIRGO.
ProQuest One Literature contains similar content to the MLA International Bibliography. It also includes primary sources like rare and obscure texts, multiple versions, and non-traditional sources like comics, theatre performances, and author readings.
