It happens all the time: You (or your child) need information on a famous person today for a school report and your local branch library doesn’t have any books on that person. Instead, try one of our biography databases. Biography Collection Complete covers all kinds of famous people, including scientists, musicians, writers and entertainers. Biography Reference Center includes biographies on people from all over the world, from ancient times to the present. Both databases offer you full text access to articles on various people, and you can print, save or email these articles.
You can access these databases at your local library or from home. If you’re at home you will need your library card so you can log in, and then you will have access to a world of information. Try it out today!
