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.
In addition you may use the following techniques to find biographical information:
- Look in an encyclopedia for a brief summary of the person's life.
- Do a subject search in the VSC Library catalog to find whole books about him or her.
- Look in Periodical Indexes, such as Expanded Academic ASAP to find articles about the individual.
