One question we get quite a lot at the reference desk is “Where is your biography section?”. This is not an easy question to answer. The library has thousands of biographies, autobiographies and memoirs in our collection, but these titles are classified under various topics/disciplines which puts them in different call number areas of the collection.
Currently on display in the Library lobby is a collection of biographies and autobiographies celebrating the wide variety of people and places published in this genre. Included are winners of the Pulitzer Award, National Book Critics Award, James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the PEN/Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award. We have also included some brand new 2012 titles and some staff picks.
