The print collection is organized by subject so there is not a biography section. Biographies are shelved throughout the collection. You can search the CSU Catalog to find a biography on a well known person, author, or historical figure.

Search Tip #1: Add any of the following terms to your search to narrow your results to biographical information.

  • biography
  • autobiography
  • intellectual life
  • dictionaries
  • bio-bibliography
  • authorship
  • history

Search Tip #2: Select biography from the Genre category in the left column of your CSU Catalog results page.

Search Tip #3: Use some of the suggested resources on the History - Biography or Literature & Literary Criticism - Biography guides to get started.

Search Tip #4: Find Historical Figures and Influential Americans by time period in the American History to 1877 and American History 20th Century guides.
