This one is nice because it sorts by the type of material.

Biography Reference Bank (EBSCO): Articles, most in full text, about more than a half-million people from around the world.
This one limits your search results, so that you are looking at articles that are mainly about the person and his/her life (not just any article that has their name in it).
Explora (Grades 9-12)(EBSCO): Learn more about your favorite subjects. Read magazines, newspapers, biographies, primary sources, country information. Find images for class projects and learn vocabulary.
This database will search ALL of EBSCO, so you will have to use more than just the person's name to search. Try adding keywords to narrow the results.
Salem History: E-book reference materials about 20th century decades: 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990's, Modern Scandals. Password: lakeviewhs
