Consumer Reports makes available to paid online subscribers test results beyond those they've published in print. Can library members access these?
The content available through MasterFILE Premier is the only Consumer Reports content the library has access to through our current subscription. Consumer Reports offers many different versions, both print and online, of their content. Although there are other versions available to public libraries than the one described in this blog post, those other versions are exorbitantly expensive and not a good value at this time. However, we keep a close eye on the options since pricing and access models, as well as platforms, are always changing. - Brandon Barnett, Electronic Resources Librarian
