Today I went to the launch of the British Library Sound Archival Recording Service which is an initiative funded by JISC to make selected extracts of the BL Sound Archive available for teaching and research to the HE and FE community. Further information about the service is available at: collection is free, however we do need to take out a licence. Although at the moment the collection is not core to LSE, it is well worth would promoting to staff as soon as we have the licence. We should include details of the service in all the digital media sessions we do for academic staff. Once we get our subscription sorted I will send a follow up message about how you access it.
