Better search selection. When selecting either a Publication place or title then restrict the Publication year to the dates that have been uploaded for the selected publication. Thus you should only be able to search in the appropriate range of a run of papers rather than searching and getting no results and wondering if it is the search term that is not located or if there is no papers in the area.
I quite often just search the various illustrated publications like The Graphic, The Sphere etc. It would sometimes be handy if users could have personal lists they could access. So these could be put into List 1 and a search confined to that.
At the moment there are a lot of suffragette (and similar) publications being added. Sure there must be people who would like to confine a search to them.
