Biography & autobiography

Search tips

How do I find someone's biography or autobiography?

  • Select subject
  • Type in the person's name, starting with the last name first

You can also:

  • Select author, and type in the person's name
  • Note that searching by author will pull up every work someone has ever produced - so, this is not the best method if you're looking for a writer/director/musician/artist
