How to Find a Book Review: Locating Book Reviews

Steps to Finding Book Reviews

Step 1. Identify author, title and publication date of the book. 

Step 2. Identify citations to book reviews. These resources will help you identify the title of a journal and the date, volume number and page numbers where a review appeared. Some of the databases include the full-text of the article.

Step 3. Find the review. Use NUsearch to locate journals and link to full-text online or find the print volume on the shelf in the library. Use the  button to link to full-text. If Northwestern doesn’t have access to the online or print journal we can get it for you through Interlibrary Loan.
