Date: Mon, 11 Sep 1995 13:13:01 -0400 From: Wayne Glowka Subject: CD-ROM Bibliographies After reading the exchanges here and listening to some lackluster debate on Jesse Jackson's show yesterday in regard to English Only, I had to fire off a piece this morning for the local newspaper about my failure to see the unified culture of America, but now I have to go to work. The Problem: The CD-ROM version of the MLA Bibliography is horribly expensive. Indeed, it is so expensive (over $2000 per year) that my college (and I'm sure many others) has has not been able to purchase it. My university system has tried to get it licensed for the entire system, but no one's had any success in budging the MLA. The Question: When I was in graduate school, I always double-checked my bibliography work in literature against the entries in the MHRA annual bibliography, which seemed to be as thorough as the MLA bibliography was in the late 1970s. Is the MHRA bibliography available on CD-ROM? Is it cheaper than the MLA bibliography?
