A list of biographies:
Biographies related to a particular subject:
What is the difference between a biography and an autobiography? A biography gives the details of a person's life, as written by someone else. An autobiography gives the details of a person's life, as written by that person. Thus, all autobiographies are considered biographies, but not all biographies are autobiographies.
PCC Library does not have a section with just biographies. The biographies are actually scattered throughout the entire library collection. If you're looking for a biography of a musician, it will be shelved with books about music. If you're looking for a biography of a physicist, it will be shelved in the science section. Ask a librarian if you need assistance.
COVID-19 & Interlibrary Loan:
Physical materials such as books and media cannot be requested or received at this time. Library staff are working remotely to fill electronic requests. Staff will try to locate or borrow digital content when possible and will contact you if other options may be available. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
If PCC Library does not own a copy of a book that you need, we can see if another library is able to loan it to you through our interlibrary loan (ILL) service. Just fill out the ILL form as completely as possible. Once the book arrives, we will contact you so that you can pick it up.
Keep in mind...
