How to Find Book Reviews

A book will usually be reviewed in the year it is published, or the following year. Therefore, to locate a review you should know:

  • the author
  • the title
  • the date of publication

If you are using a print index, copy out the complete citation. Check the abbreviations section of the index to determine the full title of the periodical.  You must look up the title of the periodical in the Library Catalogue to determine whether the Library subscribes to it. Make sure you write down its call number and location code.
