Librarian Tips

Tip: find product and service reviews

To find product or service reviews similar to those in Consumer Reports, try doing a web search for the product +review, e.g. wireless printers +review or adult care homes +review. Then read the fine print to make sure the "review" you're looking at isn't a paid ad.
