Dictionary of National Biography

The D. N. B. is a very good source of information but is a service for subscribers. Fortunately, numerous local authority library services subscribe to it on our behalf. If you are a member of a service on this list, you can use the DNB for research by entering a code and your membership number in the library card login box on this page. The code is typically, but not always, the first three letters of the county name in upper case. For example, a member of the Lincolnshire Library Service would enter LIN followed by his membership number, thus LIN******. This can be done in the public library or at home.

Having entered the site, you should find in most cases, that a search using the subject’s name, given in the following list of search keys, will find the relevant article without need for scrutiny of any intervening list of options. The search keys are given without brackets and the bracketed parts are there just for clarification.
