Abstract
Internet Newsgroup archives on services such as DejaNews offer important sources of information that may not be found elsewhere online. Describes the content of the DejaNews Database which goes back to 1995 and covers more than 14,000 newsgroups. There are 2 search options: quick search and power search. Most Web search engines offer links to DejaNews, but AltaVista offers a smaller alternative and supplement to DejaNews. Reference.COM also offers a searchable archive, as well as a useful current awareness service which allows setting up multiple searches under the user profile tab
