H.W. Wilson Introduces Book Review Digest Plus

H.W. Wilson Co. has announced that more than a million reviews of 700,000 books are now searchable with its expansion of Book Review Digestónow named Book Review Digest Plus. Available on the newly redesigned WilsonWeb (see http://newsbreaks.infotoday.com/nbreader.asp?ArticleID=17056), Book Review Digest Plus draws content from thousands of periodicals beyond the former base of just 109. Users can now retrieve full-text reviews, excerpts, and citations for general fiction, nonfiction, reference works, children's books, and textbooks.

Book Review Digest Plus lets users search reviews by keyword, book title, article title, author, source, and more. "Master" records for each book, which link to reviews from various publications, allow for convenient and comprehensive searching. A library holdings indicator that links to the library's OPAC lets users know if they can find cited books and periodicals on the shelves.

Book Review Digest Plus draws review content from such WilsonWeb periodicals databases as Readers' Guide Full Text, Wilson Business Full Text, Humanities Full Text, Education Full Text, Art Full Text, General Science Full Text, Library Literature & Information Science Full Text, Applied Science & Technology Full Text, Biological & Agricultural Index, Index to Legal Periodicals & Books, and Social Sciences Full Text.

Book Review Digest Plus is updated daily. Retrospective coverage extends to 1983.
