MLA International Bibliography: Video Search Tutorials

The Modern Language Association (MLA) has created short (@ 4 minutes) tutorials for searching the MLA International Bibliography. Look for the tutorials for the EBSCO version.
Here is the URL for the page where you'll see the list: MLA Bibliography Search - Tutorial Videos

In this list you'll also find a video overview of the MLA Directory of Periodicals as well as one for "Researching Film, Television, and Radio."

A video tutorial not in the list is "Researching Rhetoric and Composition in the MLA International Bibliography, which was uploaded very recently. Learn about the variety of scholarly works published about rhetoric and composition indexed in the bibliography and how you can most effectively search for them.

Feel free to embed any or all of these videos in your course Blackboard sites. Also, please let me know if you'd like me to include any of these tutorials in the Subject Guides (English & American Literature Film & Television Studies) or in a research guide I create for one of your courses.

Finally, I'm always happy to meet in-person with individuals or groups of students to provide basic or more advanced help  for searching MLA International Bibliography.
