Overview

Description: 

Oxford University Press Biographies consist of two licensed resources: American National Biography and Dictionary of National Biography.

American National Biography

The landmark American National Biography offers portraits of more than 19,000 men and women -- from all eras and walks of life -- whose lives have shaped the nation. More than a decade in preparation, the American National Biography is the first biographical resource of this scope to be published in more than sixty years.

Published in 24 volumes in 1999, the American National Biography is updated semi-annually, with new entries and revisions of previously published entries to enhance their accuracy and currency. Find out more about our latest update with a list of new subjects and an introduction from General Editor Susan Ware. The ANB Online features over 2,800 illustrations, more than 80,000 hyperlinked cross-references, links to select web sites, and powerful search and browse capabilities.

The American National Biography is published by Oxford University Press under the auspices of the American Council of Learned Societies.

Dictionary of National Biography

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography is the national record of men and women who have shaped British history and culture, worldwide, from the Romans to the 21st century. The Dictionary offers concise, up-to-date biographies written by named, specialist authors. It is overseen by academic editors at Oxford University, UK, and published by Oxford University Press. The ODNB's General Editor is Professor Sir David Cannadine.

The Oxford DNB was first published in 2004 in print (60 vols.) and online. Since 2005 online updates have extended the Dictionary’s coverage in three annual updates, published every January, May, and September. The Oxford DNB now includes biographies of 59,972 men and women who died in or before the year 2012—plus 536 ‘Theme’ articles for reference and research.
