Dialog® NewsRoom Now Offering Deeper Archive of The New York Times
North American Embargo Lifted With Fulltext of Articles From 1980 Now Available For All Customers Worldwide
CARY, N.C., USA (January 24, 2005) — Dialog, a Thomson (NYSE: TOC; TSX: TOC) business and a leading worldwide provider of online-based information services and integrated information solutions, said today that it is now offering a fulltext archive of The New York Times dating to 1980 through Dialog® NewsRoom and other Dialog-branded services. The archive is available to North American subscribers as well as those located elsewhere around the world.
Previously, Dialog had offered its non-North American subscribers a fulltext archive of The New York Times starting in 1998, with only abstracts for prior years. North American customers previously had access to a 90-day fulltext archive. Now all worldwide subscribers to Dialog NewsRoom and other Dialog-branded services have access to the complete 1980-forward fulltext archive.
Newly published editorial materials from The New York Times continue to be added to Dialog services and are available for searching and article retrieval on a same-day basis.
"The New York Times is, of course, one of the world's great newspapers, and we're pleased to offer a deeper fulltext archive of its reporting and commentary to complement the daily feed of current reporting and analysis," said Viji Krishnan, Dialog vice president, publisher management. "The advantage of accessing current and archived materials from The New York Times through Dialog NewsRoom is the ability to find related reporting immediately from other sources aggregated from around the world. That is the best way to develop a quick but comprehensive historical perspective on any number of business, political or economic issues, which in turn fosters more astute decision making."
Dialog NewsRoom is an aggregated database of news reporting from more than 10,000 sources worldwide and it is available as a stand-alone service (www.dialognewsroom.com) or as a component of other Dialog and Thomson services. Archived and current reporting from The New York Times has been integrated into the content pool for seamless searching.
On other Dialog-branded services, the archives of materials from The New York Times are Files 471 and 472.
