Finding Book Reviews
In addition to finding reviews in databases such as Academic Search Premier, MLA, and JSTOR, we have these print indexes to book reviews:
Book Review Digest - Reference Z1219.B72
Contains references to book reviews in popular magazines and book trade periodicals such as Publishers Weekly, including a note about the length of the review and brief excerpts.
Book Review Index - Reference Z1035 .A1 B7
Indexes book reviews for some 50,000 books annually appearing in around 450 popular and scholarly publications. It covers more scholarly books than those indexed in Book Review Digest, but does not provide any excerpts from reviews. Search by title or author.
Combined Retrospective Index to Book Reviews in Scholarly Journals, 1886 - 1974 - Reference Z1035 .A1 C6
An author and title index to reviews published in the complete runs of 459 scholarly journals. Because of its focus, it doesn't overlap the Book Review Digest, but covers more specialized journals.
