EDPY A235 - McMurtrie -: Finding biographical information

Library Catalog Search

Finding biographical information

Locating Biographical Information.

You can locate biographical information in:

  • Library books
  • Databases that specialize in biographical information.

Research Recipe for Biographical Information.

When looking for biographies, try searching for theorist name AND biography.

For example, if I was looking for biographical information on Kurt Lewin in the library catalog, I would search for Kurt Lewin and biography. If you are in a database that specializes in biographies, you may just need to put the theorist's name.
