The library provides access to a significant amount of review literature. Choice Reviews remains a comprehensive resource, although liaisons regularly consult standard sources for reviews in their respective disciplines.    

Interlibrary Loan Requests   

Liaisons receive annual reports that reflect the materials not owned by the library, but which students, faculty, and staff are requesting.   

Publisher Catalogs   

Liaisons request publisher catalogs for their respective disciplines. In addition to staying current on monograph publications, the catalogs routinely contain citations to full reviews.   


Liaisons consult current and relevant evaluative bibliographies in their respective academic disciplines. Bibliographies assess the value and usefulness of books and other materials covering a particular subject, theme, or individual, among other areas.
