What do Ray Nagin, William Shakespeare, Jennifer Lopez, 50 Cent, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Paris Hilton, Rosa Parks and Socrates all have in common?

They can all be found in the Biography Resource Center, which has been recently added to the St. Charles Parish Library databases. You just need your library card number to access the databases from home.

The Biography Resource Center contains loads of information about almost anyone alive or dead who has done anything worth mentioning. Everyone from Madonna to Mandela. If they’ve been written about, they’re in there. The information is kept up to date, and *bonus*, can be used for class assignments where Wikipedia can not.

Even if you don’t have a particular person in mind, but want information on a certain subject, this page will show you tips for searching that way.

Ever wonder how Halle Berry broke into acting? Or maybe your teacher wants a paper on Atilla the Hun? Now you know where to go.
