Enter the author's surname followed by the forename or initial(s).
e.g. Porter M or
If you either do not know the forename or there isn't one - for instance, if you are looking for books by SAKI or an album by Queen - just use one name.
Remember, it helps to give a forename or initial if the author's name is a common one, e.g. Smith, otherwise you will get a long and not very helpful list of matches.
If the author you want is not displayed, try using KEYWORD SEARCH adding other words from the title, series or subject of the item you are searching for.
