This guide has been developed as a general introduction to resources in the field of Biography. It is not a comprehensive listing of sources, but rather a starting point from which you can begin your research according to your information needs. Click on the Websites & Ebooks tab at the top for source

Google Scholar Search

When searching for biography on the Internet try searches similar to the subject searches in the UFV Library Catalogue or in the research databases. Try your favourite search engine, Google or Google scholar, reversing the name is not strictly necessary, but try it different ways for different results, e.g.

        toni morrison biography
        morrison tony biography

Also try ‘biographical sources’ along with a discipline or area, e.g.

        biographical sources science
