DERRY STANDARD

Almost 75% of newspapers being filmed for the NEWSPLAN 2000 Project come from the British Library Newspaper Collections.

The runs in Colindale tend to be more complete and in better physical condition than locally-held collections.

This volume of the Derry Standard is one of the exceptions, as it was badly damaged when Colindale was bombed in WW2.

In some cases, damaged volumes can be repaired to make them suitable for filming. Where the damage is too extensive, the Project attempts to locate substitute copies from outside the British Library.
