Help the British Library create a directory of the UK’s recorded sound collections

The British Library's 'Save Our Sounds' project is working towards creating a national directory of the UK's recorded sound. The aim is to eventually have a comprehensive, searchable online database of UK sound collections to help plan their preservation for future generations.

So if you hold any recordings - oral history or other sound recordings - whether single interviews or large collections, digitised or analogue - the British Library would like to hear from you. For more details, visit the BL UK Sound Directory webpages and fill in the online form.

Deadline for completed forms - 31st March 2015
