From 1st April 2012, the British Film Institute National Library will be free to access. This is a very welcome development, opening up the library for more users. It always seemed to be odd, that the library wasn't a benefit of membership of the BFI - now its available to everyone.
The library will be moving shortly to purpose built premisis at BFI Southbank - with completion of this part of the project due in June. They will also be making greater use of their off-site storage facility at Berkhampstead. More details about the developments can be found here.
