Thank God for the MLA International Biography

So my first day of delving into what's on MLA... and wishing that I didn't have to request so much in Inter-Library loan. Refworks is very very helpful, at least for keeping track of what I've already looked at and deemed appropriate to what I'm working on.

At this point I'm just looking for context, increasing my vocabulary, and understanding what I'm doing. Getting direction, and trying to figure out if what I want to do has been done yet.

For amusements sake, and so I have a backup copy of what I need to look at more throughly, and figure out what I need to get off of ILL/ones I found interesting and thought might pertain in some way shape or form to what I'm interested in:

You did mention in a previous post that you'd found Teach Me Tonight, but I wondered if you'd also found the academic bibliography we've been building up on romance fiction at the Romance Wiki. It's here and I'm fairly sure it contains all the items you've listed, plus many, many more.

In terms of communicating with others working in this field, you might find the Romance Scholar listserv useful (if you haven't already found it).

Golly, that IS helpful. Thank you so much. I had read about both of them on the RWA site of people who get the grants to work on Romance Research, but I didn't get a chance to investigate them until today. It's so exciting to finally, actually begin to investigate into a subject I've been passionate about for a while.
