Online Access to Consumer Reports


Tempted by all the sales out there right now?  Before you buy search for your product in Consumer Reports.  Here are tips for searching Consumer Reports using the EBSCOhost Masterfile database:

1. Right click on the following link and open the link in another window: Consumer Reports

2. On the page that appears click on “Search Within This Publication,” which appears on the right side of the screen.

3. This takes you to a basic search page.  It is a bit confusing to search from this screen so I recommend clicking on Advanced Search below the search box.

4. Now you have a screen that has 3 boxes.  The first box has the text: JN “Consumer Reports”, which tells the database to limit the search that publication.  You can use the other two boxes to search for your item.
