If you are looking for literary criticism - an in-depth examination of themes rather than an overview and opinion of the book as a whole, refer to the Literary Criticism Research Guide.
- When searching most online databases try combining the book title and phrase "book review" as a keyword search.
- Some databases allow you to search "book review" as a resource type.
- Print indexes provide book reviews as well as electronic databases. If you do not locate a review in the book review index volume with a
date corresponding to the year the book was published, check the
volumes for the one or two years after the date of publication.
