Book-length Biographies

Find book-length biographies of individuals in the HOLLIS Catalog and WorldCat (A collective catalog of thousands of libraries in Harvard Libraries) by doing a subject search on the individual's name.

Many catalog records for biographies bear a general Subject term that serves to collect together biographies of individuals sharing particular characteristics. Examples of these group Subject terms are:

  • African-Americans Biography
  • Anthropology Bio-bibliography.
  • Authors, Irish
  • Blacks Biography
  • Cardiologists Canada Biography
  • France Intellectual life 19th century Biography
  • Islam Biography
  • Medicine United States Biography
  • Surgeons Biography
  • United States Biography
  • Women botanists Ohio Biography
  • Women Costa Rica Biography
  • Worcester (Mass.) Biography

Note that by no means all biographies bear these general Subject terms. Bio-bibliography refers to a work with both biographical and bibliographical information
