Q. How do I access Consumer Reports to do product research?
Consumer Reports is available within the GALILEO databases. You can directly access it by visiting this link, selecting "Consumer Reports (Full Text)," and clicking on "EBSCOhost Masterfile Elite." If you're using a computer outside of the library network, you may need to input the GALILEO password. You may also have to enter your library card and PIN at some point in the process. Below are instructions for finding this password and another method for viewing the journal.
- Go to www.gwinnettpl.org.
- Hover over the "Digital" drop-down menu at the top of the page and click "GALILEO."
- While on this GALILEO page, look midway for the link: "Click here for GALILEO password."
- Click on the "GALILEO Main Page" link. Click on the link for "Magazines A-Z" and search for "Consumer Reports." You can conduct an advanced search for the product (All Text) and Consumer Reports (SO Journal Title).
