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.
