The British library’s newspaper archive at Colindale is set to close by 2012, to be replaced by a digital reading room in St Pancras.

The comprehensive archive of national newspapers, regional newspapers and magazines will be preserved at a new state of the art storage facility in Boston Spa, Yorkshire – The Guardian reports.

Some 750m newspapers going back 300 years and taking up 50km of shelf space are housed at Colindale.
