Featured Database - Biography In Context

Are you interested in learning more about people's lives? Has your instructor asked you to write a biography? Then take a look at Biography In Context, a library resource that's authoritative and updated daily. It lets you:
  • Search for people by name, nationality, occupation, or date
  • Find biographies of filmmakers, musicians, scientists, athletes, inventors, and politicians (among others)
  • View biographies, videos, audio, images, and current news articles
  • Use text-to-speech technology to have the biography read to you
  • Share, email, print, translate, save, cite, or download the biography
You can get to this resource from the OCC Libraries homepage. Click the tab for Articles & Databases, choose All Databases, then scroll down to the B's.

Need help using this resource? Check out our YouTube video or ask a librarian for help.

Here are some biographies to get you started:
