When you want to find information about a person I recommend you use the MJC Library catalog to find books about the person and use Biography in Context, our great database, to find a variety of academically-appropriate sources about people.

You'll find the MJC Library catalog search box on the L & LC's homepage and you'll find Biography in Context on our Articles & Databases page. On the Articles & Databases page, you can find it in the alphabetically-arranged list of databases or on the dropdown subject list under the subject of Biography.

If you are away from campus you'll need to login using your MJC ID # (without the w) and your six-digit birth date to connect to Biography in Context.
