One excellent source is "Contemporary Poets, 7th edition," from St. James Press found on the Library's web page ( by accessing "My Digital Library" with your library card and pin numbers and then selecting "Gale Virtual Reference Libary." This resource inlcudes concise discussions of the lives and principal works of poets from around the world, wrtiien by subject specialists. "Contemporary Poets" is not intended to be used for in-depth research papers, but it's perfect for someone just needing basic information on a poet's life or for anyone leading a book discussion or talk on a poet's life and career.
