Q. What is the most effective way to search recent issues of Consumer Reports to find evaluations of exercise equipment?
Start at the library home page http://www.uhd.edu/library/ and click the JOURNALS tab in the center blue box. In the Journals searcfh box, type Consumer Reports. The results will show you a list of databases in which that title is available. Select the option that reads: from 01/01/1991 to present in MasterFILE Premier.
On the next page, select the link in the top right corner which says "search within this publication." The top search box will be filled in with: JN "Consumer Reports." Leave that and in the second search box, type terms for what you are looking for. In this case you coud try: 'exercise' or 'exercise machines.'
