Revista de Libros edicion digital

Revista de Libros celebrates its first year in electronic format, providing searchable access to all issues back to the first number. The monthly review first launched in 1996 through an initiative of the Fundación Caja Madrid. For those not familiar with this resource, current issues are also available in print in Doe Library’s Heyns Reading Room. It is an important book review source for Spanish imprints and is not a periodical of general interest, nor does it compete with book sections in daily newspapers. In the words of the editorial staff themselves, "it aims to do what the the New York Review of Books in the United States or the Times Literary Supplement in the United Kingdom have done and provide a cultural opinion filtered through bibliographic commentary."

Other current book review sources for Spain and only available in print in the Heyns Reading room include Qué leer (Barcelona) and Insula (Madrid).
