Getting to Know Your Individual

For a quick overview of the life and contributions of an individual, find the person in this database and specifically one of more of the entries in the "Biographies" section.

Search the library catalog.  Print and e-books will provide more information about your individual's contributions.   Use the book's table of contents and index.  If using an e-book, you can easily search the full-text; for print books, you may be able to search a digitized version in Google Books to locate pages mentioning your topic (although you won't be able to read the full-text online).
