Inside the new British Library newspaper storage facility

I've just watched an interesting short video that the BBC put on its website a couple of week back, exploring the British Library's new newspaper archive at Boston Spa in Yorkshire. It's short and sweet, but shows how groundbreaking a facility it is, mixing genealogy and robots! To see the video visit

(NB: This may not be accessible to readers outside the UK - if not, I suggest Googling the title of the article to see if it might pop up on the international BBC news platform)
