Unlike some public libraries or bookstores, we do not have one particular section for biographies. Instead, biographies can be found throughout our collection, which is arranged by the Library of Congress Classification system, so our books are grouped by the subject they cover.

Use the Advanced Search in InfoHawk+ to search for a person as a subject.

Advanced InfoHawk+ search with name searched as the subject

You can also do a subject search for people as a group based on an identity and add "-- biography" to the end, but this may not always work if you aren't sure how that group of people has been named in InfoHawk+.

If you need any help finding biographies or biographical information about a person, just ask a librarian for help.
