Archer is a web application being developed by the Cline Center to access the Global News Index. Archer provides a user-friendly visual interface for querying the Global News Index that allows queries to be built using icons and drop-down menus, while allowing more technically-savvy users to use Lucene query syntax via a ‘raw query’ option. Archer also allows users to create facets and see visualizations of the facet results, which can help users refine their queries.
The Archer application is currently in beta phase with limited access for the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign faculty and staff. If you are interested in learning more about Archer or would like to request access to the system, please contact Dan Shalmon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
