Germanic Studies


JSTOR provides online access to back issues (from the date of first publication) of important scholarly journals. It contains journal articles about the German language and linguistics, as well as German literature.

Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts (LLBA)

Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts focuses on the nature and structure of human speech, research in speech sounds, sentence and word structure, meaning in language, spelling, phonetics and the pathology of speech, and hearing. This database provides bibliographic citations. Over 2600 journals from 50 nations are reviewed for inclusion, as well as selected books, book chapters, and dissertations.

MLA International Bibliography

The MLA International Bibliography indexes are critical in literary and language scholarship. They index literature, languages, linguistics, literary theory and criticism, dramatic arts, and folklore from over 4,400 journals and serials, as well as books, essay collections, working papers, proceedings, dissertations, and bibliographies. Approximately 45,000 records are added annually. This database is produced by the Modern Language Association. The print edition counterpart to this database began in 1921.
