To find materials written by a particular individual click "Advanced Search" under the "General Search" tab.

From the advanced search screen, select "Author" from the drop down menu. Enter in the author's name, last name first, followed by the first inital or full name.

The results screen will provide you with a list of publications authored or co-authored by the individual.

You can narrow the results by doing the following:

1) Select "Scholarly & Peer-Reviewed" or "Peer- Reviewed" to retrieve journal articles.

2) Select "Library Catalogue" to retrieve the titles of books in our collection.
