Beyond Consumer Reports-Get More Product Reviews

Although I am done with my Christmas shopping ;) there may be those of you out there who are still trying to decide what to buy. In a previous post (ok, perhaps more than one) I hawked our subscription to the online version of Consumer Reports but we also have other consumer help resources that you might find useful.

One recent addition to the Consumer Information section of our Research pages is the Consumer Product Reviews widget. It allows you to quickly locate product/service evaluations for some of today’s most purchased products from thousands of magazines available through our Gale OneFile magazine article database. This search will limit you to just product review articles that have been selected by editors at Gale so there is no wading through endless hits of articles that may not have anything to do with what you are looking for.

To access this online tool visit our Consumer Information page. The widget is located on the upper right hand corner of the page. You can choose from a select list of products, or type a product name into the search box to locate full-text product/service evaluations from a variety of publications.
