From the Google News Archive newspaper page, you can search for results exclusively from our scanned archives. You can also search Google News Archives from the Google News homepage, by using Advanced News Search.
To increase the accuracy and effectiveness of your searches on News Archive, you can search by adding operators that fine-tune your search terms. Here are the most common News archive search operators:
Date restrict is an effective way to look for information related to a specific event. If you roughly know when the event took place, you can specify a time period using Advanced News Search. Using the drop down menu under "Date added to Google News," you can either search by a range of dates, or search for articles published within the last hour, day, week, month or year.
If you would like to restrict search to all articles before a given date, you can do so by leaving the "from" date blank. If you would like to restrict to after a given date, you can do so by leaving the "to" date blank.
If you'd like to look for information from a particular publication (like the Time Magazine) or information provider (like Highbeam), you can either use the [source: "name of source"] operator in the normal search box or you can use the source field on the Advanced News Search page
News archive search supports many of the same operators that you can use in advanced searches on Google Web Search.
- the "site" operator finds results from a specific site, as in [site:nytimes.com jfk];
- the "+" operator makes sure your results include common words, letters or numbers that Google's search technology generally ignores, as in [charles +de gaulle];
- the "-" operator excludes all results that include this search term, as in [roosevelt -theodore];
- phrase search only returns results that include this exact phrase, as in ["mutiny on the bounty"];
- the "OR" operator returns results that include either of your search terms, as in [nixon OR watergate]
