Searching for Books or chapters in books
In the Morgan Library's collection, you'll find literary and critical reviews as complete books or chapters in books. In LancerQuest you can either perform a KEYWORD search on your author (the last name is sufficient) and the title of the work OR a Subject Search using the title of the work as the subject.
Click on the title and then Description to see the table of contents for that book. Some older books will not have the table of contents and you'll have to locate the book on the shelves to review the table of contents.
