Finding books and articles written about a specific author in the library's EDS discovery search can be a little tricky.
We recommend starting by selecting the Advanced Search on the library's homepage.
Then be sure to Sign In using your EBSCOHost account to guarantee you are getting a complete set of results.
Try entering the author's name as "last name, first name." Then use the Select a Field options, choosing "Subject." As you are looking for works that are discussing the specific author or one of their works, this option should help.
Tip! You may still see a few works written by the author within your search results. This is a hard search to make perfect. If you limit it too much, it will filter out too much. But by searching this way, you should have a helpful list of results with articles and books written about and discussing the author and/or their works.
