NEWS 18/8/04:  The MLA is pleased to announce that it has signed contracts with CSA and ProQuest, who will make the MLA International Bibliography available to subscribers beginning in early 2005. In addition, the Bibliography will continue to be offered on EBSCO, Gale, and OCLC platforms.

As Ovid has already announced, the MLA International Bibliography is no longer being offered through Ovid Technologies, but remains available until no later than 12 July 2005 to subscribers who had renewed prior to 12 July of this year.  The MLA and Ovid have agreed to a two-month extension to allow customers with subscriptions expiring in August and September the opportunity to find a new vendor without interruption of service. Additionally, the Bibliography will not be available through SilverPlatter after 26 November of this year, but customers may renew their subscriptions for up to one year prior to that date.

The MLA will continue to send updates to Ovid and SilverPlatter to enable them to fulfill their commitments to current subscribers, who will have access to the database through the end of their subscription terms.
