EBSCOhost

Reference databases designed for use in public libraries are made available via the user-friendly search system.

EBSCO Discovery Service

EBSCO Discovery Service provides users with an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of an institution's information resources through a single search. This is achieved by harvesting metadata from both internal (library) and external (database vendors) sources, and creating a pre-indexed service of unprecedented size and speed. Although the resulting collection can be massive in size and scope, the fact that it is indexed locally (on the EBSCOhost® servers) allows for exceptionally fast search response times.

Consumer Reports

ConsumerReports provides ratings and reviews, recommendations and buying advice across several franchises. Each product includes an overview and a ratings report card, as well as tester reviews & recommendations.

The link takes you directly to the Consumer Reports publication information within EBSCO MasterFILE.  You can browse the publication by clicking on the dates under All Issues on the right hand side.
