Looking for information about a famous figure? Type a name into the search box on the library website along with the word 'biography' to help limit your results to biographical information, like in the image below.
Depending on a person's fame, you may also be able to find biographical information in some of our databases. For example:
- Author information may be found in literature databases such as Literature Resource Centre, and Literary Reference Centre.
- Famous Canadians may be found in the Canadian Encyclopedia, the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, or the Canadian Who's Who.
- World famous figures may be found in Britannica.
Look for databases specific to your subject's field of work to help you find relevant biographical information.
