Festschriften (German) or melanges (French)
These are celebratory volumes of work published in honour of a prominent scholar.
Useful ways to search for these include the terms "in honour of," "in celebration of," "a festschrift for," and the honoured scholar's name.
Necrologies are a listing of people who have died during a specific time period; obituaries are short notices of death. Many newspapers will have a specific search for obituaries. Look for a link or select "obituary" under type.
In most databases, you can choose to search within book reviews as a type. This is a good way of understanding the context of a scholar's work from a critical perspective.
