Choice Reviews Online

This guide is to help faculty members keep up with newly published academic books in their field -- and share what they find with the library.

Overview

Choice Reviews Online is a way to keep up with recently published books and other resources in a particular academic field. It is created and maintained by the American Library Association.

Augsburg's paid subscription to this tool means that faculty members can find and recommend books to purchase for the library collection. Following their instructions, you create a free Choice account. Then you can set up custom email alerts, and mark individual titles to email to your library liaison for consideration.

 

Choice Online has a step-by-step guide on their Quick Start page, choicereviews.org/faq; we recommend it.

 

Getting Started

To get started, first make sure you are on campus and logged into AugNet. (Once you've created your account, you can use it off campus too.) Then go to Choice Reviews Online and click the "Login" link.
