Book Review Digest Plus is an essential library tool that brings together book reviews on a wide range of topics, from a variety of sources.

Unlike reviews on book-sale sites and the open Internet, many of the reviews are serious, academic works. This invaluable resource for literary and biographical research is essential for readers’ advisory and collection development.

Content Includes:

  • A citation to every book review that appears in any of over 5,000+ indexed journals
  • Over 2 million review citations, many with generous excerpts, from review sources such as newspapers, popular magazines, and academic journals with more than 118,000 new reviews added each year
  • “Master” records for each book, with links to reviews from various sources
  • Retrospective coverage as far back as 1983
  • Over 270,000 full-text reviews from more than 1,400 American, British, and Canadian periodicals
  • Coverage of books for children with a suggested grade range
