Finding Information About People: Classics

Information about people can be found in books, journals, and websites. To find books, do a Subject search in the Library Catalogue for a specific individual (e.g., Thucydides). or do a Keyword Search using a combination of terms appropriate to your search (e.g. classic, ancient, biograph). For information on people in ancient times, check encyclopedias or special biographical dictionaries for specific entry names. A list of references may be included in these sources also which can be useful for finding additional biographical information.
