Is it possible to remove this tag which was declared in another extension?

<referenceContainer name="content">
    <uiComponent name="library_authors_list"/>

I tried using remove="true" but it didn't work.

  • I think it's better to override its layout file from there you can remove it

  • How do I remove it though? I tried simply deleting the <uiCompontent> tag in my new file but it didn't work.

Basically you can do like block layout remove

Try this in your layout.xml

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <referenceBlock name="YourExactlyUiComponentName" remove="true" />

In your scenario name is library_authors_list
