The easiest way to find biographies, criticism, primary source material, reviews and overviews
0:15
on an author or a work is to perform a Basic Search.
0:20
To perform a Basic Search enter a term in the search box found on the homepage and in
0:25
the banner of most other pages. As you type, the search assist feature suggests
0:31
possible terms. Use the Advanced Search to construct complex
0:50
search queries. For example, if you wanted to find documents
0:54
or articles on a particular theme that are on a specific individual and were
0:59
published after a particular date use Advanced Search.
1:03
To begin select the field that you want to search from the drop-down menu…
1:09
…and enter your search term. Use the operators AND, OR, or NOT,
1:19
if you want to search multiple fields. You can add as many rows as needed by clicking
1:35
the Plus Sign to add additional rows. Notice that you can limit your search results
1:41
in a number of ways… You can limit your search to full-text documents
1:46
or documents from peer-reviewed publications (these are publications that only publish
1:51
content that has undergone a review by experts in the field).
1:56
You can limit your search to a specific Gale resource.
1:59
You can limit your search to articles published before, on, after, or between two dates.
2:06
You can limit your search to content published in a specific journal or publication.
2:12
Or you can limit your search by content type (like biographies or literary criticism),
2:17
… by document type (such as an abstract or overview)…
2:21
or by language. From the Advanced Search screen, you can also
2:37
perform a Person Search. Use the Person Search when you know the name
2:41
of the person you’re looking for. The Person Search creates lists of individuals
2:49
who fit a custom profile that you design. You can create a list based on… the writer’s
2:56
gender… nationality… ethnicity... occupation… the literary movement or genre
3:03
the writer is associated with… a subject or theme the writer used...
3:08
the writer’s place of birth or death… the writer’s date of birth or death… or
3:13
the century in which the writer lived and worked.
3:16
When you’ve completed your selections, click the Search button at the top or bottom of
3:21
the screen. The Person Search returns a list of writers
3:35
who match your search criteria, along with the number of items found for each individual.

The individual’s year of birth and death, as well as nationality is provided, to help
3:47
you in your selection. Use the arrows to move forward and backward
3:51
in your results list. Use the search box to search within your current
3:56
results or to conduct a new search. Use the drop-down menu to sort your results
4:01
by name, year of birth or death, or nationality. Click on a name to see a list of items found
4:09
for that individual, arranged by content type. From the Advanced Search, you can also perform
4:25
a Works Search. Use the Works Search when you know the name
4:29
of the literary work you’re looking for. The Works Search creates lists of works that
4:37
fit a custom profile that you design. You can create a list of works based on type
4:44
of work… an author’s name… the year in which the work or content was
4:49
published… the century in which the work’s writer lived and worked…
4:53
the language in which the work was originally published… or the gender, nationality or
4:58
ethnicity of the work’s writer. Notice that you can also limit your search
5:03

5:08
the Search button at the top or bottom of the screen.
