Book reviews are useful and often necessary for academic research. At the SLC, we have a number of helpful resources to help you find book reviews on a variety of subjects. They include:
- Academic databases
- Academic journals (in print and online)
- Print periodicals
- Print reference books (indexes)
Once you have located the reviews, you must determine whether or not the library owns a copy of the journal, magazine or newspaper in which the review appears. You can look up the name of the journal in the library online catalog.

Off-Campus Access to Article Databases
To use subscription databases such as Academic Search Complete, LexisNexis Academic, and JSTOR from off-campus, you simply need to click on the database link from the Databases A-Z, Databases by Subject, or Subject Guide pages on the library website.
You will be asked to enter your SUEID and password, and will be redirected to the requested resource.
If you are on campus, logging in is NOT required.
