Biographies

  • When cataloging a biography, assign a MeSH term for the appropriate class of persons or specialty, as well as a subject heading for the personal name of the biography (Cf. Module 7—Names as subjects)
  • If the work is a collective biography, generally do not provide personal name added entries if more than three people are covered
  • Also add a publication type Biography (Cf. Module 6—Publication Types)
  • The correct publication type for an autobiography is Personal Narratives
