Add Time Spans To Your News Search: Search Time Slices

This tool takes a year and query you input and generates date-restricted searches for several news search engines, including Google News, Google Books (Books, Newspapers, and Magazines are searched separately),, and Chronicling America. The URLs will appear underneath the "Click Here To Generate Search URLs" button after you click it.

(This will create a search for the span of 1, 2, or 3 years before and after your year. This is in addition to the single-year search.)

What Is This?

The RB Gizmos are a collection of search tools made with JavaScript and HTML.

Why Is This?

Because I've been writing about searching and search engines since 1996 and I'm obsessed with them.
