|Biography and Genealogy Master Index (BGMI)|
Indexes current and retrospective reference sources that cover over 13 million individuals, both living and deceased. Sources include biographical dictionaries and who's whos, subject encyclopedias, volumes of literary criticism, and indexes. BGMI does NOT index periodical articles or books of biography about a SINGLE individual, but it does refer you to Biography Index, a paper index available in the 2nd floor Reference Collection of Young Library (call number: Z5301 .B5), which does index periodical articles that contain biographical information.
