LibrarySearch Known Issues

Issue: The Modern Language Association has moved to a single vendor, EBSCO, for the MLA Bibliography.  

What this means for UO Libraries:

  • The UO Libraries already subscribes to the EBSCO version of the MLA database so there will be no change in display or functionality when using the database directly. 
  • The Modern Language Association will remove access in discovery systems such as UO LibrarySearch starting March 28.  As a result, MLA records will no longer appear in LibrarySearch results. However, citations to items in the MLA Bibliography but also covered by other services will continue to appear. For full MLA coverage – please use MLA database.
