Finding Book Reviews

Book reviews are excellent sources for discovering how a book was received immediately following its publication. Typically book reviews are published in the year of a book's publication and the three years immediately following. Keep this in mind as you search print sources for reviews of a particular book.

The major databases in the "Find Current Book Reviews" below often feature non-English language content. You can use the language filter within the database to find that content. 

Below you will find sources for locating current book reviews, and to the right are sources for historic book reviews.
