How to Tell How Close I Can Get to Subject

This may sound dumb, but here goes: How do I tell the lens-to-subject minimum focusing distance? Say I am working with a 100mm 2.8, for example ... how close can I get?? Thanks from a beginner.

  The minimum focusing distance is usually indicated on the lens barrel in feet (and meters), and can vary by manufacturer and lens design. If it is a lens you are considering but don't have yet, you can check the specs on the lens by going to the manufacturer's Web site.
