(This is not a book, but a search aid for locating material in the Reference collections.) All author bibliographies are filed alphabetically by author in the Z8000 - Z8999 call number range in the reference collections (Check the theological reference on 4th floor, too!). For example, a bibliography of the writings by and about William James will be found after "Henry James" and before "James Joyce." Generally, only very famous and prolific writers will be found in this area.
A bibliography is a collection of works about a person or subject. These are essential research tools and should always be sought because someone has already done the legwork of gathering together in one place important resources on a person or subject. It begins in 1450 and ends in 1974 and collects in all languages.
