We would like to thank Lori Montana (BA ’79) for her support of the Cline Center. Her generosity helped to fund the initial development of Archer, software that enables researchers to easily search the Center’s Global News Index. Previously, the Index was accessible to only a handful of Cline Center Affiliates with significant programming skills.
The prototype Archer system makes it easier to produce data for research applications, and to communicate insights for difference-makers in the scientific, business, non-profit and public sectors derived from more than 150 million news stories indexed by the Cline Center.
To learn more about more about Lori’s gift and the work it supported, see this press release from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS): https://las.illinois.edu/news/2019-12-11/transforming-data-knowledge
