eResources of the month
Interested in people? Want to know more about your favourite author, sports person, scientist, royal or politician? You're likely to find these and more amongst the thousands of biographies in the Dictionary of National Biography or Who's Who and Who Was Who, from Oxford University Press.
In addition to the details of people who shaped the British Isles and beyond, from the Romans to the 21st Century, there are thousands of portraits in the Dictionary of National Biography, and you can even search by theme. Discover worldwide influential people from 1897 with Who Was Who, with contemporary biographies in Who's Who. Find both resources under the Biographies heading in our eResources.
