Biography Index

Today I’d like to introduce you to a resource in our reference collection that is often overlooked.  It would probably be used much more if we had access to it electronically but for now we only have it in print.  It’s called Biography Index and it is a cumulative index to biographical materials in books and magazines.  So basically, when you want to know if a particular person has been written about in a book or magazine you can look up their name in Biography Index and find out the specific resources that contain information about them.  It’s a great tool!
