Search Tips 

Use the advanced search function to search in subject headings. Most biographies, for example, will have a subject heading for the name of the person biographed; they will also have a subject heading for the subject's profession (broadly defined), plus "Biography." Biographies of John F. Kennedy, for instance, will almost always have the subject headings Kennedy, John F. (John Fitzgerald), 1917-1963 and Presidents -- United States -- Biography
