"Unlocking Our Sound Heritage" is a five-year, £18.8 million project funded in part by the UK Heritage Lottery Fund, intended to transform the care of audio collections in the UK. In part it is assisting with digitisation of collections at the British Library and elsewhere, but an equally important goal is raising awareness of the value and vulnerability of audio collections, among collection holders and the general public across the UK. This is being done through the dissemination of training across a national preservation network, alongside a programme of learning and outreach events. This will engage directly with communities, sharing curated packages of digitised audio following research identifying priority audiences and relevant collection types.
