Frequently asked questions

How far back does the archive go?

Retriever’s news archive contains print articles from the 1980’s and forward, but it depends very much on when we signed partnership agreements and what we were able to get access to in terms of that particular media’s own archive.

Do I have access to all articles?

It is based on what agreement you have. Most common is to have access to the sources in the language of the country you are based in.

How do I get relevant search results?

You can use the search options, where you get help with key words and don’t have to know how to use operators and fields. You can also make a simple search in the initial search box and then use the filter menu on the left to drill down the result.
