Online Databases

Search the EBSCO databases (Points of View and Student Research Center) for articles from journals, newspapers, encyclopedias and other sources.  The articles from these sources within the database are usually “full text,” which means you will be able to access the full article not just a citation or abstract.  The database also contians eBooks covering literary criticism and author biograhies.

You can print or email your search results.  When you do, select "MLA Format" from the citation format drop-down list.  The print out or email will include the MLA citation for the entry.

Please see library personnel for login and password information.
