Re: [London Harrier] Update on digital version of papers held at Colindale Library or Reply Privately

Hopefully they will allow access to the digital papers from 'orbital' locations e.g. other national libraries in the British Isles and so on... It's a long way to Boston Spa or St Pancras from a lot of places in these islands, afterall.

Some of the more fragile newspapers may not be salvagable.

Can you elaborate any on exactly what that means: and what the implication is? Are these papers which were closed to public access anyway, which it was hoped to make available by digitisation, but they're in too bad a state even to be scanned? In that case I suppose we haven't lost anything we didn't already have. However, if they are copies which could previously have been consulted but the move means they've now gone 'off-limits', that would be rather disappointing. I'm guessing it's the former.
