Four things to think about when you search for news content:

(1) Data discovery: what searching tools do we have to find the news wherever it exists?

(2) Data delivery: in which formats is the news available? (paper, digital text, digital images, audio, audio/video, microform)

(3) Data currency: how recent is the event?

(4) Data persistence: how long and how completely is the news content archived and available?
