Online sources are often easy to access and search. However, sometimes print resources offer better coverage for a specific information need. Here are just a few times when it is a good idea to use print resources.
Print indexes and bibliographies can be arranged in a variety of ways. Indexes can be arranged chronologically, by subject, or alphabetically by author or title. This guide includes information about the arrangement of select resources in order to help with your search. The first few pages of any given resource will often include a few notes about the arrangement of entries and many entries can be cross-referenced using detailed indexes that allow you to search by author or title within the larger work.
These resources will provide you with detailed, accurate citations for published reviews that you can use to locate the full-text of the article. For instructions on how to to this, consult our guide on how to Find a Specific Article.
Below is a list of useful print sources for finding reviews covering a broad range of scholarly and general interest books. Additional sources, covering more narrowly-defined subjects, can be identified by searching the Library Catalog or consulting a librarian. These sources provide detailed citations of published reviews, but do not contain the reviews in full.
