Book Review Digest Plus and Retrospective from EBSCOhost

A library classic for nearly 100 years, Book Review Digest Plus now has select full text —dramatically expanding its scope with entries drawn from over 8,000 periodicals. Book Review Digest Plus indexes reviews of current fiction and non-fiction, and provides review excerpts and over 100,000 full text reviews. Every book in Book Review Digest Plus appears with all of its reviews together. A single book can have as little as one review citation and as much as a descriptive summary and many reviews with excerpts and full text, depending upon the coverage the book received in the reviewing literature. The database includes children’s books as well as books for adults and young adults. Reviews of the following types of books are excluded: government publications, textbooks, and technical books in the sciences and law.
