If you have a title of a magazine or journal and you want to know if Ohlone Library has it, click on "Find Articles" from the library's home page (www.ohlone.edu/library).  "Find Articles" is located just below the search box.

Next, click on the "Title" link next to "Find a journal by Title or by Subject".  This is located to the right of the "Discovery Search" search box (2nd bullet point).

From there you can search and browse for titles of journals and magazines and see which library database gives you access to the full-text.  

It looks like the library database "Lexis-Nexis" has Consumer Reports.  You can go directly into Lexis-Nexis from that same website.  You can search for your topic, gas furnace, from the Lexis Nexis homepage.

  1. Hello Judith,

    Consumer Report is also available through Academic Search Complete which might be an easier database to navigate. I did a quick search and found the following recent article:

    Gas furnaces You Can Count On published in the December 2012 issue. Click on the premanent link below to access the article. Remember that if you are off site, you will need to enter your student number and last name when prompted.
