Need to find a book review?
The Nancy Thompson Library Learning Commons (NTLC) subscribes to several online book review resources.
Why not use Wikipedia? Since Wikipedia is an open-source resource, anyone (perhaps a subject expert, a non-expert, or even someone playing a prank) can create or edit a Wikipedia article. On the other hand, reference books go through an editing and often a fact-checking process, which lends a level of trustworthiness to the information provided.
This guide provides some recommendations for reference resources that contain book reviews.
