Finding Book Reviews

  • You may need to look in more than one place.

  • Remember not all books have been reviewed.  If you have checked the most likely places for book reviews for your title, it is possible no one reviewed the book.

  • Indexes and databases under the General Resources Section will be useful for all subject areas.  However, you may also find it helpful to check subject specific resources.

  • If your book is a reprint or other than a first edition; it may not have been reviewed in that version.  However, you may be able to find a review of the original or earlier edition of the same book.

The more you know...

  • Know the date your book was published.  

  • This will help you to select places to search.  

  • The older the book is, the more likely you will need to use print indexes to locate reviews.

  • Check the year the book was published and the years before and after in print sources.
