Locating Book Reviews for Scholarly Books

Many databases index book reviews, including Articles+ and many subject databases that index the literature in/for a particular field. A lengthy book review can be a good source for learning enough about a particular title to warrant tracking it down or not as well as point to other authors and/or books on a similar theme.

To search for book reviews in Articles+, do a search, entering as many keywords as you'd like contained in the book title in question, and select Book Review under Content Type on the left-hand side.

Some general sources for book reviews:

There are other places to look for reviews, like the London Review of Books, New York Review of Books, New York Times Book, and H-Net Revies, all of which can be found under Databases on the library website. There's also the New York Times Book Review published on Sundays.
