Dialog exercises? Did you say Dialog exercises? Don't suppose you have any idea on the best way to retrieve archival material about clothing/films/music/current events from 1980? Preferably for Australia, but would settle for U.S. info also.
I've tried the Gale Magazine database (bluepage number 47? or 48?) but I don't have access to that db - & the Gale news one doesn't have digitized archival material from so long ago! This is the point I am stuck on for the assignment-from-Hell (see post above)
Sorry to thrust this at you - it just seemed to good to be true that you were mentioning dreadful Dialog, just as I was ripping my hair out!
