The Library does not have access to databases where you can look up general information on people. However, there are many web resources that can help you get started if you need to perform a background check, or if you are just looking for information such as phone numbers.
Try using the White Pages to find information on individuals and businesses. Keep in mind that if you are looking for more than basic contact information, you will often have to pay a fee.
If you would like to learn more about a job applicant, the U.S. Small Business Association has published a guide with information regarding Pre-Employment Background Checks.
