Searching For Books

Finding Literary Criticism

In the catalog, try a subject heading search for "author's name and criticism" without the quotes.  (See for example Subject Heading: Morrison, Toni--criticism.)  Books written on specific works will have their own subheading (Subject Heading Faulkner, William, 1897-1962. Light in August.).

You might also check to see if a bibliography has been published on the author you're researching.  To find these, try "author's name and bibliography" as a keyword search (Faulkner, William, 1897-1962--bibliography).






Finding Book Reviews

Book reviews appear immediately after a book's initial publication, and anytime up to several years after that.
