New Database: Something About the Author

Hewes Library at Monmouth College has recently subscribed to Something About the Author Online (SATA) from the publisher Gale.  Although researchers can access the print version in reference, the online addition of SATA will allow for greater flexibility to gain biographical information on today's authors.  Gale describes the database in full:
"Something About the Author Online provides first-time comprehensive online access to all volumes ever printed in Gale's™ acclaimed and long-standing Something About the Author series, which examines the lives and works of authors and illustrators for children and young adults and is the preeminent source on authors and literature for young people. Something About the Author Online includes both the main series and Something About the Author Autobiography Series, totaling more than 217 volumes, 12,000 entries, and nearly 17,000 images - all delivered in an easy-to-use 24/7 online format that matches the exact look and feel of the print originals."
So, next time you need to know more about a particular author that you are researching, you can find Something About the Author Online on the library's database page under the Find tab.

Access to library databases are limited to the current students, staff, and faculty of Monmouth College.
