Marquis Who’s Who

Posted by Megan on May 27, 2010

The library has a new subscription to Marquis Who’s Who on the Web, billed as the “one-stop source for biographical research.”

The database includes brief biographies of 1.4 million famous and noteworthy people, with new entries frequently added. Despite the strong emphasis on Americans, the database is global in scope. Entries can be searched by keyword, name, country, occupation, and so on.

The web version includes all of the content of the familiar Marquis print volumes, including, among others, Who Was Who in America, Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in Asia, and Who’s Who in American Politics.
