Q. How do I find the Book Review Digest database and how do I look through it?

Answer

To get to Book Review Digest:

Go to the library Web site at https://www.uhd.edu/library/Pages/library-index.aspx.

Select the "Databases."

Click on the letter "B."

Scroll down the list till you see the entry for Book Review Digest Plus, and click on it.

If you have a specific book you're looking for, type in a few distinctive words from the book title. If there are any reviews for your book, they should come up in search results. To get the full texts of the reviews online, click on the box that says "full text" under where it says "limit your results." However you cannot always find the full text of the reviews online.

If you don't find your book, you might also want to try another database, listed under "A," called Academic Search Complete. Or you can search LibSearch: type the title of the book in the LibSearch search box on the Library's home page. When you get to the result list look for "Content Type" options on the left and select "Book Review".
