  2. The Gloucester Citizen File Needs Correction

    Unfortunately the Gloucester Citizen archive contains content errors. The 1896 editions are for a weekly paper based in the eastern counties while 1913-19 contains the weekly London finance sector paper of the same name.

  3. 'My Research' list too long to access

    I have all my family names as separate folders, but now the list is too long to access - any ideas on how I can get to the end of the list to revisit items I have saved?

  6. Too narrow digitised text box when editing.

    I'm presently editing text and find the digitised text box on the left a little too narrow. Yo have to scroll across to see the full line. Otherwise excellent.

  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. 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.

  13. Daily indication of latest additions

    It would be useful to show every day which years have been added or expanded the previous night, perhaps simply by showing the relevant year date in bold.

  14. Make sure uploaded papers don't disappear

    I notice that previous feedback refers to the falling number of newspapers available during the WWI period. I have had a similar problem today, in that one previously accessed newspaper (London Daily News, 22.08.1891) appears to have completely vanished from your site. I accessed it on the 24th February this year, but because the quality of the downloaded PDF was not great (another minor gripe), I wanted to check the original, to no avail.

    Can you clarify whether or not vanishing newspapers are a common problem? Is it just your database being temperamental, or are certain uploads only temporary? Thanks…

  15. What is happening to the WW1 Newspaper count?

    Hi, As an avid researcher I keep a close count of WW1 newspaper availability. These numbers inexplicably seem to be going down on a daily basis - what is going on as I can find no explanation. Thankyou

  20. 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.
