You can browse for memoirs or biographies using the Library's catalog (MCC Search). Enter the keyword "biography" and select "Books" that contain my keywords "in subject". 

On the results page, you can further refine by subject, for example "Presidents" or "Actors". The following catalog search string will provide you with a list of biographies about U.S. Presidents. 

To browse autobiographies or memoirs, you would do a search similar to the one shown above, but enter "autobiographies" instead of "biography".

If you already know the name of the person, you can simply enter their name as a subject keyword, for example "Michelle Obama".
