  3. Once Book Review is checked, navigate to the search bar at the top left and put in the title of the book for which you are looking.
  4. After selecting Search at the bottom, you will be given results listing the title, author, journal title, and date of review. 
  5. Many of these will be available as full text articles. To read, simply click on the link below the search result that says Full Text Online.  

Using Gale Literature
