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.
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.
