News Archive Search
« on: September 07, 2006, 01:57:51 AM »
Google is opening up new worlds of search by launching an easier way to search and explore historical archives. Google News Archive Search creates timelines, and displays query results from time periods within the past 200 years. This is done by scanning archives of old newspapers, magazines and other publications that have never been scanned before, due to lack of spider ability of the particular databases. It was reported by Google that the New York Times, The Washington Post, Time, and the Guardian Unlimited were all involved in this project.

Google has two search options within Archive Search, Search Archives, and Show Timelines. Search Archives searches archives by publications, and can be narrowed down by dates. The Show Timelines search lists all search queries by dated categories, making it easier to track and follow news events as they have unraveled.

This new Google Archive database is pulling in massive amounts of content like the recently launched Times archive of 4300 issues, and 300,000 articles, and is going to make researchers everywhere extremely happy.
