To find biographical books on famous people, go into the EWU catalog and do this search:
(enter the name of the person you're researching as a keyword) AND biography (as a subject or keyword)
*Note: Be sure to look at the location & types of materials that you find in the catalog. If it says Curriculum Center and you look at the Details tab and it says Juvenile, then you've probably found a children's or young adult book on that topic (& thus not suitable for a college level research paper).
Having problems requesting items via Summit? Please contact the JFK Circulation Department at 509.359.7888, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or in person on the Main Level.
