Guide Contents

This guide will assist you with finding Deaf International biographies. This guide helps find articles, use selected databases and websites, and search for tips related to this topic. Deaf-related resources tend to be in the HV2300-HV2600 area for books,  bound journals, and DVDs. However, deaf biographies will be found in different call number areas.

Check out this e-book, It's a Small World: International Spaces and Encounters.
