FYSEM-110LD: A Landscape of One's Own

Biographical Information

Biographical Reference Works

For shorter biographical articles or entries on a person, reference works are a good place to start. They'll often include brief bibliographies of additional sources, too.

Book-length Biographies and Autobiographies

Search in the library catalog on the person's name and the term "biography" or "autobiography." For example, searching 

Zora Neale Hurston biography

in the library catalog will turn up both biographies about and autobiographies by the author.

Tip: sometimes you'll get better results if you run your search as a "Subject keywords" search.
