Launched today on Berkeleyside: "All The News", a new service for readers that allows them to skim and find stories

Today sees the launch of a new section on Berkeleyside. All The News, which you access by clicking the far-left orange tab under our logo on the homepage, is, we hope, going to greatly improve our readers’ experience and enable them to find and keep up with stories.

“All The News” is a grid that presents clearly and simply in one place — and  in a linear, chronological fashion — all the stories that Berkeleyside publishes.

We listened to readers who told us that sometimes they felt our articles were getting “lost”, and we took our inspiration for a solution from the New York Times Skimmer. We trust that “All The News” will help readers to easily track the stories they are interested in reading.

Here’s how it works: as soon as a story appears on Berkeleyside, it is included in “All The News” with a precis of the article. Readers can skim through all our recent stories, and click the “More” button to find further stories, which go back in time indefinitely. To search for a story, use the “Search” box back on the homepage. It’s at the very top left-hand corner.

We hope you enjoy using this new service, and, as always we welcome your feedback.
