Search Strategies

For this assignment, you are looking for biographical information. You can find this information using both Central Search as well as going directly to the library's databases. Looking at the results list, pay attention to the types of sources.

  1. Biographies - books are going to give a lot of information on your figure. Find books via the main search box - Central Search
  2. Magazine and journal articles - look for interviews or pieces of long form journalism that will give you insight into your figure. Find these using Central Search or the individual databases - limit your results to these types of sources.
  3. Newspaper articles - these will typically be very short pieces that will give you limited information.
