There is a new, free metasearch tool that presents book reviews in European history. Recensio.net is intended to be “a Europe-wide, multi-language platform for reviews of historical literature.” It is a joint project of the Bavarian State Library (BSB) Munich, the German Historical Institute Paris (DHIP) and the Institute for European History (IEG) Mainz, and is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
Currently 23 journals are contributing their book review sections to Recensio.net. You can find a list of participants at http://www.recensio.net/rezensionen/zeitschriften. In addition, authors are encouraged to add abstracts and descriptions of their articles, books, and online resources. It is possible to subscribe to feeds that provide access to new content as the site is updated.
Recensio.net promises to become an important tool for those interested in current historical publications in European history.
