You can find biographical information about an influential person in encyclopedias, books, and on websites.

|Internet search||How do I find information about people on the Internet?|
- You may not be able to find scholarly articles about some individuals.
- Scholarly content tends to focus on research and issues in a field—not on the authors or practitioners themselves.
- Contemporary researchers may not have books or encyclopedia entries written about them. You may need to rely on websites if you're interested in someone from the present day or someone who is more obscure.
- How do I find articles by an author?
- How do I search in Thoreau, the multi-database search tool?
