Finding Book Reviews

Book reviews

Quick Search

OneSearch will retrieve reviews from popular and scholarly sources. Some results will give a citation only; others will contain the full text. For those items with the citation only, try the IULink in the record. Do a keyword search using author names and title words (example: david foster wallace consider lobster). After searching use the Limit to: Options (on the left) and limit your results to Source Types: Reviews. You may also limit to Scholarly (peer reviewed) journals and full text. You may also try author names, title words and review (example: david foster wallace consider lobster review). You may do subject searching in the same fashion.
