Finding Criticism in QuickSearch

Helpful Hint: Use the subject phrase "criticism and interpretation" as part of your search in the QuickSearch.

For example, use the Advanced Search option with the filters set to "subject" "contains" to search for Mercado Tununa Criticism and interpretation. The search will only retrieve books and articles about the works of Tununa Mercado, not the works she wrote.

If the author's name is not a common one, you will also want to use the basic search to do a keyword search that includes the author's name. This will return results where the author is mentioned in the table of contents, but may not be the subject of the whole book. It will also return articles.
