The GSU Library now has access to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography Online. This resource includes more than 57,000 specially written biographies describing the lives of people who shaped the history of the British Isles and beyond from the 4th century BC to the 21st century. This makes it an excellent starting point for learning more about people who left their mark on the history of the British Isles and the British Empire, and for beginning any kind of research on the British past.
The Oxford DNB replaces and extends the original Victorian DNB, and includes: re-written biographies of all subjects included in the first, Victorian DNB, reflecting new research, and providing an up-to-date assessment of their lives; the Oxford DNB includes 16,500 biographies of new subjects from all periods. Additionally, since 2004 the Oxford DNB online has been extended by three annual updates (published each January, May, and October) which add new biographies and reference material.
