Digitization of media archives has improved both news librarians' and journalists' work. However, a significant proportion of Spanish journalists prefer searching for information on the Internet rather than in archives. Moreover, the quality of journalists' work decreases because few journalists receive proper training on information retrieval. Our research is based on ethnographic observation and interviews with more than 70 professionals from several newsrooms carried out between 2001 and 2006, complemented by a survey of the heads of archives at the main channels and newspapers.
