Archival Sound Recordings Project

Web delivery of audio from the holdings of the Sound Archive will enable the British Library to make a unique contribution to the new learning environment for UK higher and further education, and will provide indicators to the vast untapped resource that lies beyond the very small but compelling selection of recordings to be included in this project, thus contributing to the British Library vision of ‘helping people to advance knowledge to enrich lives’.
