i'd recommend doing a goolge search for the interim period
for ex:

The word "site" followed by a colon enables you to restrict your search to a specific site. To do this, use the site:sampledomain.com syntax in the Google search box. For example, to find admission information on Stanford's site, enter: admission site:www.stanford.edu
