Newspapers saved from extinction

The Scotsman reports more than 600 Scottish newspaper titles have been successfully preserved as part of an ambitious archiving campaign by the National Library of Scotland.
Newsplan Scotland set forth in 2000 to preserve approximately four million pages of the nation’s endangered historic newspapers, from 1700 to 1950. The campaign was one of 10 participating in the UK to save some 1,326 of the most endangered UK local newspapers.
