Book reviews can be located in numerous periodicals
and newspapers. Below are listed index references in which
citations for reviews can be found. To use these sources, you
need the copyright date of the book, the author of the book, and the
title. The date of the book will be the best starting point,
since book review indexes usually cover only one year of reviews.
Once you have found citations for reviews of a book, use the CamelCat
or use the Campbell OneSearch to determine whether or not we have the
needed serial title, in which the review will be found.
