You can build portfolios of articles useful to your research, tag interesting information for yourself or others, and filter results according to the names of persons or countries referenced in the text.
The site also hosts Breaking History, a feature section providing historical analysis and context on today’s headlines. Each Breaking History article uses the Keesing’s archive to generate a full timeline with links to contemporary articles on the events dominating today’s news.
