Databases that Contain Reviews

How to Search for Reviews in Databases

Many databases contain reviews from magazine, newspaper, and journals. Before you start searching, it is helpful to know the year the book or film was released, the book author's full name, and the complete name of the book or film. After entering the name of the book or film in the search box, look for a limit to document type "Review" in the database advanced search pages. You can usually limit by date range too, if you want to see reviews published near the time of the book's publication or film's release.

If this search is not available, add the term "review" to your search.
