Good luck doing anything with MLA that involves electronic media.  What
an embarrassingly, backward, even retarded organization MLA is.  Compare
PMLA to the American Historical Review.  Compare the MLA bibliography to
the World Shakespeare online bibliography.  A librarian here at UF
resigned from a MLA committee on the bibliography after it was clear
there was no real commitment to improve it.  Subscriptions to PMLA have
plummeted in part because of its resistance to going online (again,
check AHR for a shocking contrast).  Trying doing a Google search of MLA
or Modern Language Association.  The MLA website comes not come up.
Unless you already know it is MLA.org, you won't find it.  Talk about
total incompetence.  People at the forefront of research on electronic
texts such as Jerry McGann view the MLA and PMLA with revulsion.
