Faculty members are using the MLA International Bibliography in their virtual teaching of Literature to engage students in the research process and deepen their involvement in the scholarly conversation. To support that practice, the Modern Language Association recently released “Literary Topics,” the fifth subject-area module for use in conjunction with the free teaching resource Understanding the MLA International Bibliography: An Online Course.
