This updated version of BIR also includes the following enhancements: price listed on the search results page (rather than only at the title record page); ability to limit searches and browse using Dewey classifications; persistent links to titles are displayed on each title display page; and additional print and email options for results lists are available (with or without book jacket or cover image, with or without annotation, etc.).

Book Index with Reviews is a database that provides information on over four million book titles in a range of formats, including large print, books on tape, etc. Fiction and non-fiction titles for juvenile and adult audiences are included in the database, in all genres. The product contains over 800,000 full-text searchable reviews from various sources. The full-text reviews, combined with the product's subject headings and flexible search engine, connect users to titles that are currently available, along with those that will soon be published.
