Library Journal:

Publishes quarterly lists  of scientific,  technical and medical books announced for publication by publishers. 

The third category of review  sources is directed towards the general public. Daily newspapers have a convention of publishing book reviews of selected books in their weekly review sections and are indeed very valuable. Reviews of Times Literary Supplement, New York Time Book Review, those that appear in leading Indian daily newspapers (in their weekly supplements) carry valuable sources for book selection, particularly for public libraries. 

Book Review Digest  (BRD) and  Book Review Index  (BRI)  are two publications exclusively  devoted to book reviews. Both are American  Publications. BRD publishes every  year 5000 to 6000 summaries of new books, covering  70 leading journals and newspapers. BRI notices reviews that appear in 325 journals and provides citation to 40,000 reviews  each year. In addition, many of the general periodical indexes include book review  citations which also provide access to reviews. 

While book reviews are excellent sources  for book  selections, there are limitations which compel us to look for other sources. A small percentage of published books get reviewed; even these reviews appear with a time gap of several months after the book has been published; and the quality of reviews varies. In spite of all these limitations, book reviews serve as very important selection tools.
