  4. Make it easier to download OR print just the article needed and not the whole page.

    Make it easier to download just the article needed and not the whole page. See the NLA's TROVE site for example.

  6. 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.

  7. Improve resolution of PDFs, or just let us download the original image

    The PDFs we get to download now are in some cases completely unreadable because the image resolution is far too low. This is especially disappointing when you save the PDF, and come back to do some work from it later on only to find it's a unusable.

    Why can't we download high resolution images instead?

  9. Please go back to the old layout.

    The layout has become more difficult. Each item takes more vertical space and so more scrolling is needed. Furthermore, when I click on view, nothing happens. At present the system is of no use.

  10. 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?

  12. Add more East London papers to the vault

    Plenty of papers to mull over few examples being the East London Advertiser, Stratford Express, Southwark News, Newham Recorder, Ilford Recorder, Barking and Dagenham Post and Deptford and Peckham Mercury would
    stem the tide.

    Thank you

  13. Fulfill your obligations

    Of covering each and every area not just certain flavour of the month regions, we still lack real in depth coverage in the South West(Bristol, Plymouth, Exeter), South Wales(Cardiff, Swansea, Newport), South Coast(Portsmouth, Brighton, Bournemouth, Southampton, Torquay), South and East Anglia(Swindon, Oxford, Luton, Norwich, Watford, East London, Ipswich), East
    Mids(Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, Northampton), West Mids(Stoke on Trent, Wolverhampton, Walsall, West Bromwich) Yorkshire(Leeds, Barnsley, Huddersfield, Hull, Middlesbrough, Sheffield) and Lancs region(Manchester, Burnley, Blackpool, Preston, Wigan, Oldham, Blackburn, Carlisle)
    im need of radical overhauls.

  14. Focus your attentions away from Ireland and Middlesex

    This is called the British Newspaper Archive, not simply the Irish and Middlesex Archive, please apply my thought process into other large regions found lacking on the paper coverage, Bristol, Portsmouth, Cardiff, Nottingham, Sheffield, Norwich, Luton, Preston, Stoke on Trent, Hull, Manchester, Leicester are crying out for more substantial offerings now it the time to oblige your customers

  16. Return to old format.

    New website is terrible and a waste of my subscription. It is certainly not user friendly and at the moment will not load any images.

  17. 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.

  20. Please return usable interface!

    The new interface as of May 16, 2017 (US Pacifc) is practically unusable. The old interface worked quite well; the new one lost features: I am no longer able to drag the page into position, nor can I zoom in and out with the mouse wheel.
