British Newspaper Library at Colindale to close November

The British Library has announced the following via Twitter:

The Newspaper Library at Colindale will close 8 Nov 2013. For details of moves and embargo dates see

The newspaper library is moving its collection to a new purpose built facility at Boston Spa, West Yorkshire, though access will continue in London via a dedicated reading room at the British Library in St Pancras. Access to print newspaper titles will, however, remain off limits for a year or so due to the complexity of the move.
