Everything Shakespeare

Searching MLA

These databases are recommended for finding scholarly articles about Shakespeare and his works.

You can search most databases the same way you search a library catalog, by author (last name first), title (journal or article), or, more commonly, by keyword or subject. A keyword search is a broader search; you can type in any word or phrase. A subject search uses controlled vocabulary. In databases, subject headings are often referred to as descriptors or index terms.
