Search the Tiger catalog by "author" to find works by that author. Search the author's name as "subject" to find works about that author. In both cases, enter the name as last, first, such as "Melville, Herman".
MLA International Bibliography and JSTOR (below) are good places to start looking for criticism.
The MLA International Bibliography is the most extensive database we have for finding articles (and book chapters, and books) about literature. It doesn't have a lot of full-text articles, so don't forget to click the "TuttLink" find full-text icon to see how to get the article you want.
JSTOR is easy to search and has almost entirely full-text articles, but searches a limited number of journals.
For more appropriate databases and ideas for effective searching, see the "Find Articles" tab, above.
