Bridge (or WorldCat)
Search books and materials owned by Carleton and St. Olaf (or, if you use WorldCat, thousands of libraries across the United States).
- An author's name (last name first) will be the Subject of a work if that work is written about that author. Doing a subject search for the author's name will therefore show you biographies and works of criticism.
- Scholarly biographies often include criticism. See if the biography has an index at the back of the book, and then check to see if the work you're looking for appears there.
Remember to try keyword searches, examine the information for relevant
looking articles, and make notes about the subject terms that you find
there. Then you can do a combination of subject and keyword searching.
If you should find an article that looks good but does not have the
full text attached, click the "Find It" button to see if we have that
article elsewhere at Carleton. Remember that you can instantly limit
most searches so that you get only scholarly articles.
