Click the tabs above to see lists of credible biographical information sources (both print and electronic) made available by Bailey/Howe Library.
This guide does not list general sources that also include biographical entries. Please see the box below to find those.
The icon indicates a licensed database that can be accessed outside the library only by UVM affiliates (see instructions at left). All users, including those not affiliated with UVM, may use these resources from a computer within the library.
Try these two options:
1. Consult a subject-specific encyclopedia. They often have entries about people. Ask a librarian to recommend an encyclopedia, or find one by performing a "Guided Keyword Search" in the Classic Library Catalog.
2. Search for an individual biography of the person. Perform a "Guided Keyword Search" in the Classic Library Catalog.
