A Guide for Finding Biographical Sources.
Huang, Samuel T., Comp.
Intended to assist library users in finding biographical sources in various disciplines, this compilation lists selective biographical sources which are available in the Northern Illinois University Libraries. The compilation is divided into four major areas: indexes to biographies, sources of information on living persons, sources of information on deceased persons, and biographical sources in special fields of interest. This last section covers the following subject fields: fine arts, performing arts, business and commerce, literature, authors, fictional characters, philosophy, religion, politics, government, law, physical sciences, behavioral sciences, social sciences, recreation, and sports. Entries in each section are arranged alphabetically by title. A step-by-step method to instruct library users in locating biographical sources is included. (Author/FM)
