Indexes to Biography Resources

This database is an index with citations; it does not include full-text articles. Instead, it can be used to identify biographical reference books which include information about specific people. Make sure you check for multiple listings since different forms of the same name are listed separately. For example, one book may include "sir" or "jr" as part of the name, another might include birth and/or death dates; each of these will be listed separately.
