The Assignment

Questions 1 & 2

Use the Library Catalog to search for books by and about your assigned author.

1. To find books by your author, click on the author button after typing the author's name in the search box. 
Example: Your author is Jane Austen. When we search for books by her, we want books that she wrote herself.  

2. To find books written about your author, click on the subject button after typing the author's name in the search box. 
Example: Your author is Jane Austen. When we search for books about her, we want books that other people have written about her life or her work. These are not books that Jane Austen wrote herself.
