Tips for using Factiva
Factiva currently is unable to retain a common start page. The start page is whatever page the previous user last consulted. Until this can be fixed, follow the following steps:
- Always use Factiva from Internet Explorer.
- Once in the database, Click on the Search tab in the top left corner
- Click on Source
- Select Source Category
- You are now ready to choose publications. You can search by title, industry, region, or type. When selecting you will perform a series of "OR" statements. Click once and the source becomes PURPLE. Do not doubleclick since this will deselect the choice. Click on the title or group, not the boxes next to the titles.
- Once you have selected your string of publications, fix dates and type in your keywords.
