History 300: Author Biographies

Library Resources for History 300

Where to Look for Author/Editor Biographies

• Journal articles and books may contain brief biographical information on authors. You can use this to find more information about the authors.

• Search for information about authors on the web. Include the university or organization at which they work(ed) (often found in articles and books), or their publisher, in your searches. You can find CVs, additional publications, and other academic information.

• Use the biography databases available through the library, listed in the box to the right. Some of the databases, such as the American National Biography and the Dictionary of National Biography only covers deceased persons. These databases may also contain links to biographical information in other databases.
