Biographical Information

There will be many times during your years at Castleton and later in life when you will need to find biographical information about a person. The library has dozens of biographical sources in the reference area. A researcher often doesn't know which one will contain information on the person of interest.

  • Biography Index

    Look up a name in Biography Index, and you will find references to books and articles about that person. It includes people living and dead from all nations.

In addition you may use the following techniques to find biographical information:

  1. Look in an encyclopedia for a brief summary of the person's life.
  2. Do a subject search in the VSC Library catalog to find whole books about him or her.
  3. Look in Periodical Indexes, such as Expanded Academic ASAP to find articles about the individual.
