Book Reviews

A guide to finding book reviews in UVic Libraries.

Finding Book Reviews

This guide is designed to you find book reviews in all subject areas.  Some reviews will be substantive and academic, some will be short and aimed at book buyers.  Others will be lengthy but aimed at the general public.  

  • Subject specific resources are listed under the tabs to the left  <--.  
  • A great way to find book reviews is to look the book up in the relevant subject specific scholarly database. If that fails, try MLA Bibliography or one of the book review databases listed below.  
  • If all of that fails, try the publisher's website (for books still in print), or (where publishers often list published reviews).  
  • If nothing seems to work, consult your subject librarian
