To use these huge sets, go to where they are on the shelves, identify the slim index volumes, or the most recent volume that says "cumulative index" on the spine, then look for your title or author to learn which volumes have information about the author or item. This is pretty old school, but for basic information it may save you time, and if you have the heart of a bookworm, you may love it.
In Nineteenth Century Literature Criticism you can also look for the topics volumes to identify where your topics are addressed.
The first three sets are in Kennedy 111. The fourth (Dictionary of Literary Biography) is on the fourth floor.
