Print Books

There are two different print book sections in the library that focus on people:

  • Memoirs: accounts of experiences personally written by the author, typically tend to be more appropriate for personal/independent reading

  • Biography/Autobiography: a book that covers the history of a person from birth to death (or age at time of publication)
