Need information about a person?
Click the tabs above to see lists of credible biographical information sources (both print and electronic) made available by 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.
