Dear colleagues, 

I'm writing to share two CfPs for next year's MLA convention, "Vernacular Science" and "Yiddish, Yinglish, English: Rendering the Multilingual Immigrant Text in a Dominant Language". Abstracts are due by March 19, please be in touch with questions. These two panels have been proposed by the LLC Yiddish forum's executive committee, which I am chairing this year. We would love to hear from other MLA members interested to participate in the Yiddish forum in future years.

MLA to give EBSCO exlusive rights to its bibliography


The Modern Language Association has issued a letter announcing that it plans to transfer exclusive rights to sell access to its MLA bibliography to EBSCO.  EBSCO will sell  the bibliography to libraries as part of the content packages it normally offers. Gale Cengage, which has also offered the bibliography, has expressed disappointment over this development.  The MLA says that maintaining the bibliography on several different "platforms" was eating up too much valuable staff time. 

Below is a link to the MLA letter concerning its decision.
