New resource: British Library Archival Sound Recordings

Access to the Archival Sound Recordings collection from the British Library has been enabled in eSearch. Access on-campus and off-campus (within the UK) is by Athens username and password. The resource is described as follows:

The British Library Archival Sound Recordings collection brings together 12,000 selected recordings of music, spoken word, and human and natural environments. These recordings can be played on the site (either using the built-in player or with a preferred alternative device), and downloaded and edited for educational use. Access to the recordings is not available from outside the UK.

A BL guide to relevant sound devices and audio applications can be accessed from the information icon for the resource in eSearch.
