Online Magazine Index

Postby paulberyl » Sat Oct 10, 2009 4:16 pm

The BBC History Magazine now carries an online index to subjects covered in the magazine since 2006. Is there any value in having a similar online index for WDYTYA?

Also given the number of forum members is there any value in having a member's interest list where members can list the names and areas of their research so that members with similar interests can share information?

I've just had a look at the BBC History index on their site and I agree it is good, although if we follow their system, we would not be able to search on surname, for example. We will look at implementing something similar, although it will take time. In the meantime, the pdf index that is included on the CD each month is searchable and should pick up a lot of stuff.

As for members' interests, I'll also see how we can implement that. Thanks for your suggestions, all very helpful.
