  2. Improve viewer layout to make it easier to navigate

    I prefer the page layout used by Gale News Vault. It makes it much easier to scroll through a news article. The default window in BNA is too small, and changing to full page view makes it very difficult to navigate the page.

  3. Future Publication Schedule

    How about posting a schedule of proposed releases of newspapers. I check the site most days for the areas of the country I am most interested in but a prior announcement of forthcoming newspapers would be useful.

  4. Academic Citation

    The BNA has become an invaluable tool for researchers. I'd like the ability to download a citation of the records in the common formats MLA, Chicago etc.Your database is likely to contain the required information such as source, date, page number and so on. Is there any chance of such a facility being added?

  6. Reporting errors to you

    An easier way to report errors to you. I've found pages that won't open, the OCR being nearly non existent, the OCR covering a different article on another page, the OCR not opening. When I have reported these errors in the past all I receive back is a standard reply regarding the OCR will have errors and not responding to my specific point.

  7. Zooming feature

    I've just rejoined after a couple of years away... maybe it's because I am using Chrome now but when I zoom in to read a highlighted result, I cannot move the page around so the highlight if off the screen... I do not want to have to make a pdf of every result, however tangential to my research! Maybe there should be arrows/ + and - signs, for zooming/navigating a page that are not appearing on my screen? I am having a similar issue on ancestry so it maybe a browser issue

  10. Save a single article

    I have been reading for a couple of years that you hope to make it possible to save a single article instead of a whole page but I haven’t seen any progress in providing this, are you actually going to provide this option? it is why I let my subscription lapse, I would rejoin if this was sorted.

  13. Stop treating one off subscriptions as continuous

    Stop treating one off subscriptions as a continuous subscription. It's sharp practice and it's not a good look.

  15. adoption of corrections

    When I edit an article's text, when are those corrections taken into account for a future search? I have been doing corrections for months and none of them have been picked up in subsequent searches.

  16. Search for a phrase is often ignored

    When I search for a phrase, for example "W. Hunter" to get only hits for "W. Hunter" it is very annoying that I get endless hits for just "W." Can the search engine not be taught to ONLY look for "W. Hunter" ?

  17. A Timeline, simple base line of world/UK event dates occurring at, or near the atricle date

    Place the articles in some kind of timeline, a simple baseline graph idea would help I suppose. I don't have a plan but whenever I find an article concerning an ancestor it would help to picture the time he was living in - who was on the throne, world action concerning Britain etc.

    Could you make it possible to download a complete edition of a newspaper in one go rather than having to download each individual page?

  19. highlighting in editing box

    It would be extremely helpful if the blue highlighting box (search result) on the image could be replicated in the editing box so as to save lots of iterative attempts to find that highlighted text for editing.
