Consumer Reports provides reviews and ratings for products big and small. For many people, it's their go-to guide before investing in a purchase. We have the print magazines, but did you know you can also access it online?

Once you click on the link and type in your library bar code, you will see a page that lists issues by year (on the right). Don't know which issue to choose? No problem!

In the upper left corner, you will see a link to "Search within this publication."

Clicking that link will bring you to a page with a search box. Type in your search terms before the text that already appears in the box (it should say JN "Consumer Reports").

Hit the Search button. Your results will be listed with the most recent articles first. You may read the article online, print it out, or email it.
