Top Tips for Using the New Choice Reviews Online


Welcome to the new Choice Reviews Online, which has a completely new interface and more content than ever.  Keep these important tips in mind when exploring the new CRO!

    • You must disable the pop-up blocker on your browser and security software to print, e-mail, and download from the http://www.cro2.org site. Also check your toolbar settings (e.g., Google toolbar); again, you may have to turn off the pop-up blocker.
    • To browse new reviews, click on Current Issue and scroll down to the Browse Reviews section.  To browse reviews and feature articles from 3 previous issues, use the Recent Issues menu.
    • Keyword searching in Quick and Advanced Search:  All variations of a search term will automatically be retrieved.  To limit to specific words or phrases, enclose the words in quotation marks:  e.g., civil will retrieve civil, civilized, and civilization; “civil rights” can focus the topic.
    • To receive monthly updates of new titles in your areas of interest, click on the Register link to create a profile and obtain a password.  If you currently have a profile, please review the many new options available in the My Profile section.  You can change your Profile as frequently as you like and immediately view titles that match the revised Profile.
    • You can also change the publication date at the top of My Monthly Reviews to view reviews matching your profile for any previous issue.
    • To store lists of titles online or to save searches, you also need to Register to create a profile and obtain a password.
    • Important expanded search options in Advanced Search:  Keyword in Library of Congress subject heading, LC class number, and Choice recommendation and readership levels.
    • More options for displaying records: You can now sort and view records by Publication Year, Title, Author/Editor, Publisher, Choice Subject, LC Class #.
    • Saved search strategies: You can create and save frequently useful search strategies in Quick Search or Advanced Search to run again in the future; click on Save Search after running a search.
    • You can identify libraries near you that own a title by clicking on the hyperlinked ISBN in a record, which will connect to WorldCat’s “Find in a Library” feature.
