To peruse or search the most recent two weeks of a selected group of major news publications including the Wall Street Journal and New York Times just go to the News Pages in the top menu and select 'Factiva Pages'.
To search all Factiva content over a longer time period use the Free Text Search Form (aka Search Builder under Search in the top menu).
You can try any word(s) you want in this search box but searching in this scattershot way may yield too many results. Thus you may find it useful to know some ways to refine your search.
example1: Find all items published in the last two years which mention the term 'local government' in the headline and lead paragraph (hlp=) AND which prominently feature the state of Georgia.
Note: Use the Region lookup to find the code for Georgia (re=usga). Click the blue up-arrow to bring the code into the search box. Make sure it is placed after the boolean AND unless it is the first element in the entire search string. Once you know a code you can type it directly into the search box in the future.
example 2: Search for all items published in the last two years in just the Wall Street Journal (rst=j) that mention the term 'local government' in the headline and first paragraph
Note: Use the Source lookup to find the code for the standard Wall Street Journal.
Some other useful ways to refine searches include hd=(...) (headline only) and by=(...) (byline/author name). Additional ways can be found by clicking on 'Example' to the left of the search box.
