I recently attended a meeting at the British Library for the Save Our Sounds project, which the CMA is an advisor. I’ve posted a quick blog about the project, which will be relevent to CMA members as the project is rolled-out and the regional hubs are established.
As the project is established there is a possible advantage for CMA members to submit audio and sound content that is of special importance, as this then becomes part of the public record of sound material that is held for ever by the nation. This would be a good thing to do to establish sound-based community media prjects as part of the official record of the British Library, which can then be referenced in funding applications, academic reports, government reports, and so on. As they say, watch this space for more information.
