Searching from the Libraries catalog, PRIMO, will get you started with finding literature for your research.
Pro search tips:
Use WorldCat when you can't find what you want through Swem! It searches article databases and library catalogs from libraries all over the world. Request items through Interlibrary Loan with one click using the "FindIt@WM" button.
Try searching for your author's last name in the "Creator" field or looking for any of their famous works.
