When searching for book titles in Findmore@NUSL, you may occasionally find online book reviews with the exact same title as the book you are searching for and as such when you click on it, you will be sent to the online book review in a journal. This tends to happen when we don't have a copy of the book at all.
In the example below, even though the title matches the book "A sociology of educating", it's not actually a book but a online book review.
You can tell this isn't the book because the content type is not Book or eBook. Below shows the actual book.
We are aware this can be quite confusing as the entries look similar, as such by default we filter out all online book reviews we can find but unfortunately some of the online book reviews are not correctly labelled by the publishers. As you can see in the above example it is wrongly labelled as a Journal Article but not book review, so it isn't filtered out.
The other possibility is that you may be directed to our library catalogue and find that we only have the print book. These are due to errors in cataloguing, we are working hard to eliminate such errors, do let us know if you find them.
