Biography Resource Centre

The Epic Databases are vital tools for students studying at high school in New Zealand.  We have access to these databases via the Ministry of Education's TKI website.  There are lots of different databases on there but our focus for today is the Biography Reference Centre.

Students at all levels of the school can find reliable, easy to locate information on this database and find biographical information about famous people - and those whom you may never have heard of but who have had a lasting impact on world history.   Whether you are looking for a famous scientist, a figure from history or someone who is prominent right now, this is the place to look first.

The log in for the databases is on tear off sheets all over the library, you can access the databases from school or from home and we really encourage you to give them a try. 

"This database contains an extensive range of contemporary and historical biographies of notable people including some New Zealanders. It is searchable by name, nationality, and occupation. It is ideal for secondary students and teachers."

 If you need help navigating the databases come and see Ms Schaumann and she can help you.
