This Guide is tailored to your author research assignment.
There are various strategies and resources to explore in order to meet the requirements. Look to the navigation bar on the left to explore resources by type.
Library research involves resources such as databases that have high level functionality, so you may have questions--don't hesitate to contact your librarian in the box on the left.
In addition, you may need to try different strategies or keywords until you are getting the information you want. Again, your librarian can help.
Information about the author can be found in an author search in Literature Resource Center. Also, reference resources can have author information. Also, search the library OneSearch catalog for an author's name to find biographies and autobiographies. On the web, libraries and academic programs have digitized author content--sometimes from the author's personal papers.
