This Guide is intended to help you find library materials on photographers. If you need further assistance please ask a reference librarian.
Find a book
Use Maxwell Library's Online Catalog to search for a book by, or about, a person. If you search by author or subject enter the person's last name first (e.g. Mapplethorpe, Robert). You can also search by Keyword (All fields). Word order does not matter in this case. Also try searching "Photographers - Biography" as a subject to find books that have a collection of biographies.
