  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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" ?

  15. Exact searching

    Because words like "and", "of" etc. seem to be used as operators, I often can't use them in the way I'd like. For example, I want to search for the EXACT phrase "The Horse and Hounds". At the moment, I can't see how to do it.
    I would like to be able to search for an EXACT phrase , e.g. "The Horse and Hounds" without
