  1. lists of newspapers

    it would be great to be able to have a downloadable version of the list of newspapers available digitally at a particular point. That way, I can keep track of how comprehensive my search was at the time I conducted it - making it easier to report on the limitations of my search.
    I mean the list here - https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/titles I've just spent some time taking screenshots of the full list! (around 40 separate screenshots!)

  3. Allow changing page in fullscreen

    Currently, when looking through an issue of a publication, it is a process (once the issue is found) of: click on page, click fullscreen, go back to standard screen; select another page, click fullscreen, go back to standard screen; and so on.
    This could be: click on first page, click fullscreen, click or scroll to next page.

  6. This is one of the most awkward frustratiing sites Ihave ever used.

    Why can you not simply type in a Title of a Paper and a date and get that paper ? Simple.

  7. Facility to view blue highlighted searched-for text on downloaded images

    It would be helpful to be able to easily find - in a downloaded image - the text/words searched for originally. Once a document is downloaded, there is no means of "re-searching" for the particular text.

  9. Correction of OCR text by Download to MS Word or similar

    I suggest that you allow the downloading of the OCR text to our computers so that we can manipulate the text in our word processor software. Editing the text would require a image reference and an uneditable original text. The original and edited text then can be uploaded to a holding location for validation before amendment. I tried using the previous editing system and it was pretty dire.

  13. Download a full newspaper

    Could you make it possible to download a complete edition of a newspaper in one go rather than having to download each individual page?
