Help: how to analyze past Finnish mainstream media coverage?

Forward to the past.

I’m reaching out for pointers here. On behalf of a business relation, I’m looking for a way to analyze – qualitatively and quantitatively – the coverage that a particular topic has received in Finnish mainstream media during the past three years.

There are plenty of media monitoring services out there, especially for social media. The challenge here appears to be that most of them monitor publications in real time. They cannot retrieve data about what has been published in the past.

So the question is: where to look for ‘media monitoring’ of the past? Any ideas, any starting points will be much appreciated!

P.S.: I also posted this question on Quora, LinkedIn, and Medium.
