SLPL REFERENCE DATABASES--BIOGRAPHY

INTRODUCTION: For the benefit of its cardholders, the Library maintains subscriptions to many high-quality web-based reference products not openly offered on the Internet.

Access to this premium web-based content is one of the privileges of holding a St. Louis Public Library Card. Some content is only available on reference computers at Central Library and our branches; some databases (like those listed below) are also available from home using just your library card and a PIN (more info on PINs).

Biography: Search over 300,000 biographies on more than 220,000 people from nearly 80 respected Gale Group sources.

Discovering: Search in-depth reference content for the core curriculum areas of Literature, History, Biographies, Science, and Social Studies.
