  1. BNA Library Access at Home

    During the current lockdown, many public libraries that offer Ancestry and Find My Past but only in library buildings (which are now closed) are offering the same service to library members in their homes. You just have to log in to your library account, and then enter the username and password you are given.
    How about the BNA doing the same thing?

  3. Make it easy to scroll through the pages of a newspapers

    I use the site for historical research, and so I might want to look at a series of newspapers around a specific date to see what was happening. It would be great to be able to scroll through a newspaper;s pages (paticularly when viewing on iPad) rather than the 3-4 clicks needed to flick between pages. I'm thinking similar to a Kindle experience - eg one click or tap to skip a page

  5. Previous/next result

    Add ‘Previous result’ and ‘Next result’ links to each page shown from a list of search results, so that it is not necessary to return to the results list before viewing the next result. The Times Digital Archive already has this facility.

  7. 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

It is a fast-paced and immersive experience that involves players taking on the role of gorillas in a jungle environment.

The game emphasizes agility, quick reflexes, and strategic movements to outmaneuver opponents and avoid being tagged.

  9. Ability to Clip Articles

    Ability to clip articles as opposed to downloading the page in its entirety without any boundaries for the information you're actually interested in preserving. Think Newspapers.com. For the price of admission the feature is sorely needed.

  11. Web Site performance and OCR

    Firstly I think you are doing a great thing with this archive; good job!
    However my experience of trying to contribute to your project in a small way and correct the plethora of errors which your very basic OCR generates in the articles I am researching has been very frustrating. Reviewing and correcting a few thousand words is taking hours when it should take maybe only an hour if the performance of the website was quicker and if the user interface for editing had been better designed. In Microsoft Word or some similar software I can see all the errors…

  13. Voting for a publication instructions

    My colleagues and myself have been struggling to vote for a newspaper to be recommended for digitisation. We are not computer illiterates but have found the voting process far from intuitive, particularly as you have to create a second password in order to vote. Do you have some clear instructions we could share with others who have been put off attempting to vote?

  15. The newspapers you already claim to have on your site

    Such misleading information your system has about what dates are covered.

    It says you have Cambridge Independent Press 1839 - 1950, BUT YOU DO NOT. Only the odd year after 1900.

    Again, Cambridge Daily News 1889 - 1994 but not all years.

    It is astoundingly annoying to realise that the reason I cannot find an item is that you are missing those years. Especially when I found so much on a free weekend at newspapers.com!
