Consumer: How Do I Find Consumer Reports Articles Online?

Here you can find consumer information, product and price research and credit information.

Quick Links


To get the most out of your gift-giving dollar, you want to find products that have desirable features and are built to last. Everybody knows that Consumer Reports provides some of the best information on consumer products, often testing dozens of similar products and comparing them against each other for quality, durability and value. Although the library carries print copies of Consumer Reports, the quickest way to find information is online. Unfortunately, many features of the Consumer Reports website are only available for a fee. Luckily the library has access to electronic versions of the print magazine through its subscription with EBSCO databases.

  1. Click here to access our EBSCO database called Academic Search Complete.
  2. Enter your library card number if you are outside of the library. Just click Enter if you are at the library.
  3. In the Publication box, enter "Consumer Reports". This way, you will only retrieve articles that appeared in Consumer Reports. Make sure you spell it correctly! The database is unforgiving.
  4. In the Find box, enter the type of product you are searching for, such as "digital cameras".

You may print out the full text articles that are available, including those handy charts that Consumer Reports makes. Fold it up, put it in your pocket and head out to the store!

The full-text Consumer Reports articles are in pdf format, appearing as they would in the print magazine.
