Readers’ Guide Retrospective

Reader’s Guide Retrospective is a new resource at WKU Libraries that allows patrons to search almost a hundred years worth of Readers’ Guide issues, 1890-1982. This includes:

  • All the information from 44 Readers’ Guide annuals in a single database that your patrons can search easily and precisely; save on valuable shelf space, and no need to replace damaged or worn-out books.

  • Access to over 3 million articles from approximately 375 leading magazines; many of the articles are peer reviewed.

  • Coverage from a wide range of journals.

  • The complete text of Wilson Library Bulletin from 1914 on, including PDF page images.

WKU students, faculty, and staff can access Readers’ Guide Retrospective from our Database page. If off campus, make sure you log into our Proxy Server first.
