How to find books or articles written by your prominent figure

To find books and articles that were written by your prominent figure, use Advanced OneSearch and do an Author/Creator search for your figure with the format "last name, first name."

If your figure hasn't written much, or you are struggling to find resources, change the "Author/Creator" to "Subject" or just as a keyword search.  OneSearch automatically filters out newspaper items, so adding them back in the search results could help to find interviews or other articles written about your figure.
