Finding Books about a Person

Use the Library Catalog to find books about a person

  • Do a keyword search for your person's name AND biography
    • For example: Nelson Mandela AND biography
  • You can also look for biographies by subject such as:
  • African-Americans AND biography
  • Palestinians AND biography
  • Poets AND biography
  • You may use the same search with the change of using the "Limit to" option on the search page with the selection "eBooks"
  • This will retrieve online books you can read and use on the computer rather than in print: use "view now"
