How to search media releases
The current default setting offers users a complete list of all Media Releases made by EDW since the middle of 2010. To narrow your search, we suggest the following:
- Select the most applicable date period from the drop-down menu.
- Narrow your results by entering a keyword or phrase into the "Keyword or Phrase" form field.
- Narrow your search even more by using enclosing quotation marks (" ") around words that must all appear in that order within the title, brief or main body of the Media Release.
Important: once you’ve selected a time period from the date selector, your keyword or phrase will only be searched within the time period selected. You must select "By All Dates" from the drop-down menu to compare your keyword or phrase against all Media Releases found in the archive.
