To find reviews for books published before 1985, you can also find those book reviews in our online article databases JSTOR , and New York Times below. 

Another source of older book reviews can be found on Metro Campus's Library in  Book Review Digest. 
For books published in 1925 to 2007, use the print Book Review Digest series located at: Z1219 .C96 Z1219 .C96 to find your book review in Book Review Digest. First,  find the volume with the publication date, then search by title or author then look at the excerpts from book reviews. It will list the magazine name, issue number, date, and page number. Your campus librarian can assist you with finding the full text of the book review in TCC article databases or via interlibrary loan.
