The Book Review Index family of online products includes two distinct and separately saleable databases, including Book Review Index Online and Book Review Index Online Plus. They are both OpenURL compliant, allowing subscribers to link to full-text reviews from other sources.
Book Review Index Online (index only) is a comprehensive guide to book reviews that includes more than 5 million review citations from thousands of publications. This online product will answer librarians' demand for a single access point to index data contained in numerous print volumes of Book Review Index.
Book Review Index Online Plus, like Book Review Index Online , includes more than 5 million review citations; it also includes more than 634,000 full-text reviews from InfoTrac OneFile and InfoTrac Expanded Academic, as well as full text via links to library holdings. Access to full-text reviews allows users to conduct research in numerous disciplines, including literature, history, education, psychology, and more.
"The beauty of this resource is that in its full-text incarnation the distance between the user and the necessary information shrinks dramatically. In other words, Gale here makes it worth the effort to seek higher-quality, more reliable review sources."
