A selection of resources to help you research the personal histories of noteworthy people.

How to use this guide

This guide is arranged a little bit differently from other guides. Many guides have sections for databases, books, and websites - this guide, however, is grouped by subject or group of people. Under each tab you will kind all kinds of resources - for example, if you click on the World tab, you will find books, databases, and websites about people from countries outside of the United States.

Not every section will have all sorts of resources - some may only list websites, others may only list databases and books.
