Book Review Digest Plus: A library classic for nearly 100 years, Book Review Digest Plus now has select full text —dramatically expanding its scope with entries drawn from over 8,000 periodicals covered by other Wilson databases.

A single book can have as little as one review citation and as much as a descriptive summary and many reviews with excerpts and full text, depending upon the coverage the book received in the reviewing literature. The database includes children’s books as well as books for adults and young adults. Entries currently encompass some 1,300,000 reviews covering over 550,000 books and grows with daily updates.

Wilson’s Book Review Digest, Book Review Digest Retrospective provides excerpts from, and citations to, reviews of adult and juvenile fiction and non-fiction.

It includes accurate, detailed, cover-to-cover indexing of some 500 periodicals, as far back as 1929! It cites nearly one million articles, including book reviews. Combining the Education Index Retrospective database in a multiple database search with other Wilson databases such as Education Full Text or Social Sciences Full Text is a particularly exiting way to uncover a century of research.
