Citation managers

Reference managers (also called citation managers or bibliographic management software) offer a way to save, organize and manage references. Many work with word processing software to format in-text citations and bibliographies for papers and theses, allow you to share references, and enable you to attach or link PDFs to a citation record.

Indexes to Scholarship about the 19th C

Modern Language Association International Bibliography (MLAIB) (UCB only) The MLAIB is the largest index of critical scholarship on literature, language, linguistics, and folklore, containing over 2 million citations.  The online version starts with the 1926 annual bibliography, but coverage of JSTOR titles goes back to the first issue published.  Important to remember that, until 1956, the bibliography concentrated on scholarship by those living in the U. S. Coverage expanded in 1956 with the addition of the word “international” to the title of the bibliography.  Also important to know: subject indexing expanded dramatically in 1981; entries before that time usually have only the subject author’s name, national literature and century as descriptors.  Users must consult catalogs to ensure finding monographs or collections of essays.  The MLAIB does not include book reviews unless the review itself constitutes a scholarly article.  See “Searching the MLA International Bibliography” for effective ways to search.

Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature (ABELL) (UCB only)  British index to scholarship about literature written in English.  Much overlap, but not complete overlap, with the MLAIB.  Since we have access to several hundred journals from the company that puts ABELL online, you can search the full-text of journals as well as ABELL at the same time.

Academic Search Complete (UCB only)   A multidisciplinary index to articles in thousands of journals with full-text for many. Good place to find recent scholarly articles and to begin research on interdisciplinary topics.  Useful to use the Choose Database option and add Essay and General Literature Index (both),  Historical Abstracts (scholarship on history), Humanities and Social Sciences Index, Humanities International, and possibly the Reader's Guide.

Victorian Database Online  Indexes books, articles and dissertations from all disciplines on the Victorian period.
