Save our Sounds HLF funding – The British Library

I am so pleased to hear that this funding has been given to the British Library to develop this sound Archive. Really interested to see what music is included. See below for details.

The British Library has received *earmarked funding for a £9,568,900 bid from the Heritage Lottery Fund (including a £215,900 development fund) to help to save the nation’s sounds, and open them up online for everyone to hear.

The funding will enable the British Library to digitise and make available 500,000 rare, unique and at-risk sound recordings from its own archive and other key collections around the country over 5 years (2017-2022).
