Credo Reference: A Great Source for Biographies!

What is it about peering into others' lives that is so fascinating?

If you need information about a famous person or historical figure, you should definitely look beyond Wikipedia for a reliable biography. You're in luck, as the Credo Reference e-book database just added several biography reference books that can easily be searched to find information about your person of interest. New titles in the database include:

First Ladies of the United States
Great Irish Lives
Great Lives: A Century of Obituaries
Great Military Lives
Great Thinkers A-Z
Great Victorian Lives
Key Thinkers in Linguistics and the Philosophy of Language

The Credo Reference e-book database contains hundreds of specialized dictionaries and encyclopedias covering a wide variety of subjects. You can browse by book title and within a specific book, or you can simply search for a topic to find results in all of the books in the database. The best part of Credo Reference? It's available via the NCC Libraries Web site any time of day or night! Just log in using your student I.D. number and personal password.
