Book Reviews: A Research Guide

Book reviews provide summaries, contemporary criticism, and succinct evaluations about published works. Reviews normally appear within a year of the date of publication; if this date is not known, it often can be ascertained by searching the title of the work in CATNYP, the online catalog of the research collections; if the publication is not found therein and was acquired by the Library before 1971, it is then necessary to check the Dictionary Catalog of the Research Libraries. If these two sources are unable to provide the desired information, please consult WorldCat, an international bibliographic database. In addition, feel free to speak to a librarian at the Information Desk.
