  • Folklore
  • Rhetoric and composition

  • MLA Bibliography  itself does not contain the full text of the items it indexes. 
  • While the bibliography itself does not contain the full text of the items it indexes, it provides a number of ways to link easily from a citation to the full text in another location.
