Other search methods
You can download the Arcscan data [[and Arcscan app]] and then run the search on your own machine rather than online. See the Files page. (Fetch fresh Arcscan data after each new issue of the magazine.)
The DVD containing all previous volumes of Archive has its own search tools. (You will still need Arcscan to search current issues.)
Search your printed copies of the magazine
Click here to search your printed copies of Archive, thanks to the online Arcscan database.
- The Arcscan database is a keyword-index of all articles published in Archive magazine since the very first issue 30 years ago.
- It includes “hints and tips” items as well as major articles.
- The database also indexes the digital files supporting articles in the magazine.
- In addition, the now discontinued Living with Technology magazine is indexed.
You can search the entire database or just one volume or just a single issue. Results can be presented as a simple list or in a tabular format. The title, the author’s name and one or two short sentences are given to summarize the content of each article.
The articles themselves are available on the DVD or CD (see Products), or you might of course have kept your own set of the printed magazines.
The Arcscan database was begun by the late Eric Ayers and is now maintained by Kris Adcock.
