An Author (results grouped by title) search retrieves materials by author or composer, displayed in a list sorted alphabetically by the title of the work with all editions grouped together. This search is most useful when trying to locate works by prolific authors or composers, such as Shakespeare or Beethoven, which exist in multiple editions. Do not use this search to find works by a second author, or by editors, performers, contributors, translators, etc. For these, try a plain author search instead.
