  1. Download PDFs

    After many years of inaction will we ever see a resolution of the poor image quality of downloaded PDFs? As a subscriber to both the BNA and the INA (Irish Newspaper Archive) I cannot understand how the INA
    are able to offer high-quality downloads while the BNA refuse this option.
    Could you at least explain to your subscribers why this is so.

  3. Include notes on how to reference articles and what url or doi to use

    I can't find anything on the site to help me work out how to reference a newspaper article in my list of database/published references, and what url/doi to use. So it would be really helpful to see some examples. I'm currently writing for a journal that uses the Chicago style, but Harvard style is also common.

  5. 'Liverpool Daily Post' 1919 issues

    Coverage is indicated as 1910-1919 in date-range menu, but I can only see up to end of 1918.
    Many thanks!

  10. Blocks of missing test on a page

    I have come across missing data (Liverpool Echo 23 Dec 1963) where there are large parts of the Births Marriages and Deaths which have not been scanned/uploaded. If you had a link to report missing data, this would help you to identify if more work was needed.

  11. Wrong Date

    How do I notify BNA when I found a scan which is indexed with the wrong date? I came across one which is indexed as 2 June 1970 when the actual scan is of the same paper but 2 June 1969.

  12. Create higher resolution PDF's

    The PDF's are unreadable once downloaded. What's the use of having a download button if they can't be read? I can't be that hard to create a medium resolution version of a newspaper. Request was already done in 2015.

  19. Northern editions

    I love going through the Sunday papers for the sporting news especially football match reports. Would be nice to see some Northern editions added as all the current ones are london based.

  20. use spell check for old newspaper scans

    Most words are not read correctly in the oldest newspapers, so a word search is often nearly hopeless, but perhaps a spell check could help, obviously not for proper nouns that start with a capital letter.
