Scholarly books (a.k.a. monographs) are reviewed by the author's fellow experts in the field in scholarly journals on the topic. So for example you have a scholarly book on a new chemotherapy treatment, it would be reviewed in a journal about cancer or oncology or pharmaceuticals or medical research.

The way to find articles (including book reviews) in online journals is to search the databases that they're indexed in. 

So to find a review of a scholarly book, you just need to:

  1. Use OneSearch, which is the search box at the top of the library web site.
  2. Search the title of the book, in quotation marks. 
  3. In the left column of the search results page, where it says Source Types, click Show More. Then click Reviews and Update.
