Tips on Finding Reviews

A book review usually appears in a magazine or journal soon after the publication of a book; reprints, later editions and reissues are often not reivewed, so it's important to have the original publication date.  For electronic sources, a keyword search on a  word from the title or author’s name (plus the word review) is often sufficient.

Note for literature students: while reviewers are referred to as critics, reviews have a different purpose from literary criticism.  Ask a reference librarian for good  sources of literary criticism, as well as for reviews.

To find book review sources in SOUTHcat, try a keyword search on "book reviews".
