How to Research Literature Topics: Find Biographies
A guide to finding sources for literature papers at Valencia libraries.
Change the drop-down menu for the first box to Subject, then enter the author's name. (It's important to search by subject, not by author because you want to find books about this author, not works by this author).
Add the word 'biography' to your search.
Limit the search to Books or to E-books. Note that not all print books are available as e-books, and vice versa.
To find a print book, write down the call number.
To open an e-book, click View Online. (It helps to be logged in through Atlas. If you are not logged in through Atlas, you will be prompted to enter your Borrower ID and PIN.)
