Biography in Context

Perfect for students of all ages, Biography in Context is an excellent database to help you learn all about famous and influential people throughout history.  This database features well-researched biographies about over 650,000 subjects, from George Washington to Kendrick Lamar.  What makes this database even more helpful is, as the name says, the context!  You can get background information anywhere on the internet, but here each person’s biography is featured alongside what was happening at the time of their birth, lists of other famous contemporaries, news, articles, audio and video recordings, and other primary sources.  Plus, it looks a lot better on your bibliography than Wikipedia!  This database provides a great snapshot to help you get to know many of history’s most influential people.  This database is free through our website – all you need to do is sign in with your library card.
