Sound Scotland is a collaborative platform with an aim to improve the care and access of sound collections and archives across Scotland. It is led by the National Library of Scotland working with organisations across Scotland to achieve this aim.
After a few years of initial work Sound Scotland starting a new phase of its development. As such we are changing the way we collaborate with stakeholders of sound collections in Scotland. On the Monday 7th March we are having our first open meeting for Sound Scotland stakeholders at the National Library of Scotland, George IV Bridge., Edinburgh.
Join us and help us uncover Scotland’s wonderful sound heritage
We encourage all to attend who wish to participate in working collaboratively with organisations to secure fragile and important sound recordings for future generations, and to open up these collections to public ears. We particularly encourage those who are responsible for sound collections in archives, libraries and museums as well as community and private collections. We also want to connect with people who work in public engagement and learning with these and other relevant collections.
On the day, we will give a brief overview of the progress we have made to date, and we look forward to your input in current and future planned projects.
