EconLit, the American Economic Association's electronic database, is a reliable source of citations and abstracts to economic research dating back to 1886. It provides links to full-text articles in all fields of economics, including capital markets, country studies, econometrics, economic forecasting, environmental economics, government regulations, labor economics, monetary theory, urban economics, and much more. EconLit uses the JEL classification system and controlled vocabulary of keywords to index six types of records: journal articles, books, collective volume articles, dissertations, working papers, and full-text book reviews from the Journal of Economic Literature. These sources bring the total records available in the database to more than 1.2 million.
The resources listed under the General Sources tab (at the top) are recommended starting points. A few contain full text book reviews such as Expanded Academic ASAP, Lexis Nexis Academic Universe, New York Times, Proquest, and Wilson Select. The Book Review Digest contains book review excerpts (plus citations to the source). The rest provide only citations to where the book reviews can be found. If this is the case, check the MSU Libraries Online Catalog to find out whether we own the source journal and where it is located. If we don't own the book or journal you are interested in, don't forget that is always an option.

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) administers the textbook review process for the Board of Education and makes recommendations on approval to the board.The Code of Virginia permits local school boards to use textbooks not approved by the Virginia Board of Education. If a local school board opts to use a textbook that has not been approved by the Board of Education, a local textbook review process should be conducted that includes components similar to the state level review.
