Book Review Digest Plus and Retrospective from EBSCOhost

Feb. 19, 2011 – The Book Review Digest Plus database includes reviews written from 1983 to present. We previously has access to , so now you can search across this entire date span for reviews. The WilsonWeb database interface allows you to search more than one database simultaneously, so use the Open Database Selection Area link at the top of the search screen to select the other review database to include with your search.

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 appears with all of its reviews together. A single book can have as little as one review citation or 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. It includes children's books as well as books for adults and young adults.

See our page on finding book reviews for more tips and databases for finding book reviews.
