Our e-archive

Of course everyone in the newsroom is using our e-archive (with Mozilla Firefox), but if not, message IT to download Firefox and I will send you the web link to the archive. Your DTI log-on and password work with this version too. The e-archive IS DTI, just a web version of it, so wire stories are there too.

E-Archive does have some quirks. I recently discovered it will not search special characters, such as the apostrophe (') . I was searching the name "Clyde O'Ferrell" but the story was not returned. Alina, in IT did some digging and discovered that our e-archive version doesn't like special characters. So instead of using the apostrophe, use a question mark -- like this "Clyde O?Ferrell".
