Green light for Scottish sound archive development

The Scottish Government will provide financial support for the National Library of Scotland to pilot a national sound archive. First Minister Alex Salmond announced that the Library is to receive £100,000 for sound archiving development. NLS will work on the archive pilot with a Skye-based digitisation project. Since 2006, 'Tobar an Dualchais' has digitised, catalogued and made available online over 11,500 sound recordings from all over Scotland. Some recordings date back to the 1930s, while the most recent were recorded in 2000
