The British Library’s Newspaper Moves strategy

This information has been transcribed from a news listing provided by the Federation of Family History Societies to which we subscribe.

Thursday 13 October, 10.30 12.00, St Pancras.

In 2013 the British Library’s hard copy newspaper collections are scheduled to move from the current Colindale site to a planned Newspaper Storage Building at Boston Spa, West Yorkshire. Future access to the newspaper collection will be via microfilm and digitised copies in a dedicated Newspaper Reading Room at St Pancras.

Join us for a workshop to provide you with an update on the progress made by the Newspaper Moves strategy, along with a preview of the service currently being developed for St Pancras.

As a regular user of the newspaper collections, this session will give you the opportunity to give us feedback on the strategy, to help us manage the transition as smoothly as possible and help users adapt to access arrangements in the future.

If you would like to attend this session please RSVP to natasha.green@bl.uk
