BGMI (also known in previous versions as Biobase) indexes some 12 million biographical entries in about 2700 volumes and editions of reference books such as Who's Who in America or the Dictionary of National Biography. It covers contemporary and historical figures, indicates birth and death dates and gives the title and edition in which relevant entries can be found.

The IUB libraries owns most all the reference books indexed in this resource. Consult IUCAT for their locations and call numbers.
