Using OneSearch to find Scholarly criticism
Another place to check for books on your topic is OneSearch. Here are some quick tips for effective searches:
If you are looking for books by a writer, go to the Advanced Search and search for "author / contributor" (last name first).
If you want books about an author, search by "Subject" (last name first).
Most books by and about an author are shelved together, so once you have a few call numbers, you can browse.
If you're looking for a particular short story or an essay, a Keyword search works best. It may be in an anthology, far away from other books by or about its author.
Some examples of subject headings are:
Short stories, American--Women authors
Short stories, American--African American authors
Short stories, American--Indian authors
If you discover a book, chapter, or essay by using the MLA Bibliography, search OneSearch for the title of the book to see if we own it.
