Hello.  Here is one way to search for book reviews of books that deal with the subject of apartheid.

1.  Go to the library's web page at www.clarion.edu/library'

2.  In the green "Research" box, click on the "Databases" link.

3.  Click on the link for the "Academic Search Complete" database near the top of the alphabetical list.

4.  You will be prompted to log into the database if you are coming in from your own computer, or from off-campus.  You have two options:  log in with your library ID number & last name     or      log in with your iClarion logon information.

5.  When you get to the database search screen, click on the link for the "advanced search" under the text box.

6.  At the advanced search screen, type in your search term i.e. apartheid in the first box.  In the drop-down box after the text box, select "SU Subject Terms."  This allows you to look for resources that have the concept of search term i.e. apartheid as a main topic of the article.  Next scroll down and select "Book Review" from the "Document Type" box.  This will limit your search to only book review articles.

7.  Finally, click the search button.  This brings back many articles......I got 444.

Hope this helps.  Best wishes!
