  1. Go back to same place on results page when an article has been reviewed

    when weve viewed an article and return to results page pls can you go back to the last position we were on in the page so we dont have to keep scrolling down all the time esp as some results are very similar

  2. Some way of searching for two words NEAR each other rather than just both appearing or a phrase

    Some search systems have commands like NEAR4 to find two words with four words of each other.

    All too often a search for two words finds then in completely different parts of the page.

  3. Improve date entry

    Other newspaper archives have a better date entry system where you can type in the year and day and month default to 'Any Month' etc .

    One feature that would need some programming work but would be very useful is if I enter the start date as 1850 then then the end date drop down list started at 1850. I might alternative be better if the drop down list worked opposite ways around i.e. start date at the earliest date available and end date started at the latest date available.

  4. Allow users to search by title from main search box

    Sometimes I search for a newspaper title in the search box like Dundee Courier. You should automatically pick up on this and forward me to the Dundee Courier browsing area instead of showing me instances when the name appears in a newspaper. That would be more useful

  5. make bookmarked pages visible in results lists

    It would be VERY helpful if previously bookmarked
    entries were flagged up in search results (tags are already shown).

    At the moment there is no easy way of doing multiple overlapping searches and accumulating a "superset" of all the items you found, or telling if a new search has simply found an entry that a previous search had already found.
