Finding Biographies
Book-length biographies of individuals may be found in GIL by searching by keyword or subject, using the personÕs name. If searching by subject, use the last name and select the personÕs name from the list of headings. The library may not own any book-length biographies of many persons, however, so you may need to consult biographical dictionaries and encyclopedias or periodical indexes to find information on them. Biographical reference books may be categorized in various ways. They may be current, listing only persons still living (these are often referred to as ÒwhoÕs whoÕsÓ); or they may be historical, including only dead people. They may be specialized, covering only persons from a particular country or belonging to a particular occupation or group; or they may be general, including people of all nationalities, occupations, or groups.

Ampère, André Marie
Ampère, a teacher at Paris, has his permanent place in the history of science because it was his name that was given to the unit by which we measure electrical current. He had, of course, an interest in electricity; in addition, Ampère made similar investigations as did Avogadro into the nature of matter in its gaseous state.
Alfven, Hannes Olof Gosta
What I know of Alfven is that he was born in Sweden in 1908; and, while at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, in 1970, he won the Nobel Prize in Physics "for fundamental work and discoveries in magneto-hydrodynamics with fruitful applications in different parts of plasma physics." I first bumped into Alfven when I picked up a small paperback book of his, which I very much enjoyed, Atom, Man, and the Universe, The Long Chain of Complications (San Francisco: Freeman, 1969). It was written simply and plainly for a general audience, and enables us "to view ourselves both as a part of the atomic microcosm and as part of the universe that dwarfs us."
Archimedes (287-212 B.C.).
