user panel members sought
The British Library’s Archival Sound Recordings (www.bl.uk/sounds) is a JISC funded project to make selected material from the Sound Archive available online to Higher and Further Education institutions. The project will be hosting a User Community event on 11th March at the British Library, St Pancras, for academics and postgraduate students who would like to become more actively involved with the service.
Reflecting the material they are making available, they are looking for specialists in Art, Art History, Design and Media. The resource includes in-depth interviews with 20th century artists, photographers and designers, and talks from the ICA with leading cultural figures of the 80's, which will be uploaded later this year.
User Community members will have the opportunity to influence the direction and development of the project, support the development of case studies, host workshops, give conference papers and work with us to encourage use of the resource in the academic community.
