Surname alone on chief source (RI22.1B)

When the chief source gives a single author's surname alone (without forename(s) and without the names of other authors), search briefly to see if there are other publications that are his/her works. Base the heading on the t.p. usage found most frequently. Use catalogs such as NUC, BN, BNB, RLIN, or OCLC, and in this case, cite both headings and usage found.
