    The MLA is currently seeking new field bibliographers, and we are also accepting applications for three-year MLA Bibliography fellowships. We believe that members of the Modernist Studies Association might welcome the opportunity to become contributors to the Bibliography. The MLA International Bibliography database is an essential humanities research tool providing access to print and electronic books and articles published on modern languages, literatures, dramatic arts (theater, film, television, opera, and radio), folklore, linguistics, pedagogy, rhetoric, and writing studies. It is compiled by the staff of the MLA Office of Bibliographic Information Services with the cooperation of approximately 100 volunteer specialists called field bibliographers. The primary responsibility of bibliographers is to record the bibliographic information of scholarly documents and to define their subject, content, and form.Field bibliographers for the MLA International Bibliography perform an important service for the profession and receive institutional recognition while deepening their knowledge of the field, sharpening their research skills, and exploring new areas of inquiry.

    For your members willing to submit at least one hundred citations per year over the course of a three-year commitment, we are accepting applications for MLA Bibliography fellowships. Applications must be received by 1 April 2020 for our fellowships that run from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2023. On completion of the fellowship, fellows receive a stipend of $500 and a certificate presented at the MLA Convention awards ceremony. For fellows attending training sessions at the MLA Annual Convention, conference registration fees are waived.
