British Library: Unlocking Our Sound Heritage

From the British Library: Unlocking our Sound Heritage. “The British Library is today launching Unlocking Our Sound Heritage, a major preservation and access project which has received a £9.5m National Lottery grant. This builds on the generous support of other donors and funders, meaning that the total project funding of £18.8 million is now in place. The funding will enable the formation of the first ever national network of ten sound preservation centres. This network will now come together with the British Library to save almost half a million rare and unique recordings that are threatened by physical degradation or stored on formats that can no longer be played.”
