Answer

You are able to find book reviews in many of our databases--use the Find a Database and find the database by name in the alphabetical list.

Most databases will have book reviews in the particular subject area of the database. For example, if you need a book review of a science book you may want to use Science Direct.

A good general database to search for book reviews is Academic Search Complete. After you do your search, you will need to narrow by Source Type on the left hand menu to only see book reviews.

The database JSTOR is also good for book reviews.  You will need to use the Advanced Search feature to narrow your search to only book reviews.

For older books you might want to try a reference book like Book Review Index (call number: Z1035 .A1 B6) or Book Review Digest--(call number Z1219 .C96).  Reference items are located on the Sturgis Library 3rd Floor. These books will list publications where reviews of books have been printed in the past.
