The International Medieval
Bibliography was founded in 1967 with the
support of the Medieval Academy of America, with the aim
of providing a comprehensive, current bibliography of
articles in journals and miscellany volumes (conference
proceedings, essay collections or Festschriften)
worldwide. Its editorial staff is based at the Institute
for Medieval Studies at the University of Leeds.
The International Medieval Bibliography
comprises 365,000 articles, all of which are fully
classified by date, subject and location, and provide
full bibliographical records. The IMB offers an
unparalleled tool for medievalists to identify the
contents of current work published throughout Europe,
the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region.
The discipline areas to which the IMB
is relevant include Classics, English Language and
Literature, History and Archaeology, Theology and
Philosophy, Medieval European Languages and Literatures,
Arabic and Islamic Studies, History of Education, Art
History, Music, Theatre and Performance Arts, Rhetoric
and Communication Studies.
