      Biographies can provide valuable material for research papers in a variety of fields.  Why look for biographical information?

      • To research the lives, thoughts, and works of historical figures
      • To gain a better understanding of historical events and ideas, by getting the perspectives of the individuals who shaped those events and ideas
      • To learn more about authors, which can provide insight into the themes and characters of their literary works

      This guide highlights biographical resources available at the Geisel Library and online, and explains how to locate biographies on specific individuals.
