Simple Research Aids

Essential Tools

  • MLA International Bibliography
    The MLA International Bibliography is a subject index for books and articles published on modern languages, literatures, folklore, and linguistics.
  • WorldCat
    Over 62 million records describing books, periodicals, sound recordings, videos, musical scores, archival materials, maps, electronic resources, and much more, in over 400 different languages. Shows what materials are held by over 57,000 libraries worldwide (including most libraries in North America, and the national libraries of Australia and many Western European countries). Incorporates all records from the Research Libraries Group (RLG) Union Catalog (RLIN).
  • English Short Title Catalogue
    The 'English Short Title Catalogue' (ESTC) is a comprehensive, international union catalogue listing early books, serials, newspapers and selected ephemera printed before 1801. It contains catalogue entries for items issued in Britain, Ireland, overseas territories under British colonial rule, and the United States. Also included is material printed elsewhere which contains significant text in English, Welsh, Irish or Gaelic, as well as any book falsely claiming to have been printed in London. The database contains nearly 470,000 entries, and represents the holdings of some 2,000 libraries world-wide.
    The COPAC library catalogue gives free access to the merged online catalogues of major University and National Libraries in the UK and Ireland, including the British Library.
