  • MLA International Bibliography [via Proquest]  Icon
    The Modern Language Association International Bibliography (MLAIB) covers international scholarly materials on all languages, literatures, linguistics, and folklore from around the world. It includes citations to items from journals, series, books, chapters in books, essay collections, working papers, proceedings, dissertations, and bibliographies. MLAIB does not index book reviews. While neither comprehensive nor definitive, the representation of German studies material is substantial and adequate for the needs of less specialized users.
