Read This Before You Go Shopping!

EbscoHost, the company that produces the beloved NoveList, also puts out a magazine and newspaper index called EbscoHost Magazine and Newspaper Search. It offers a very useful feature that allows you to search for product reviews. If you can't find a review for band saws in Consumer Reports you may find a great product review in another magazine by using this search.

Choose MasterFILE Premier from the EbscoHost Menu.
At the search screen choose Advanced Search. It's located under the search box.
On the right side of the screen is a box called Document Type. Select Product Review, then search for what ever item you want to research!

Anyone can use EbscoHost from inside the Library, and Dover Public Library cardholders can use it from home by linking to EbscoHost.
