Automation at the British Library

The BBC has a short video on the automated system at the British Library.
The British Library has unveiled a new automated storage facility and the BBC's Phil Bodmer has been given a look around.

Much of the sorting and carrying at the futuristic £26 million building at Boston Spa in West Yorkshire is carried out by robots.
The additional storage building will eventually house approximately seven million items from the UK national collection.
