To find print biographies and other books about an individual use Library Search. Search for a person’s name as a subject and enter: last name, first name. Examples:
Martinez, Maria Montoya
Elizabeth I, Queen of England
King, Martin Luther, Jr.
Rice, Condoleezza, 1954-
References to individuals may appear in collective biographies about groups of people.
Subject headings in Library Search are useful. Examples:
African-Americans -- Biography
Biologists – Biography
California – Biography
Women Scientists – Biography
In Library Search, if you don't have a specific person in mind, try a keyword search on the characteristic that interests you, plus the word Biography. For example: Canadians AND Biography.
