On 16-17 March 2009, The British Library will be hosting the conference Unlocking Audio 2: Connecting With Listeners.
The conference is a key event exploring the use of sound recordings online, focussing on ways that researchers and other audiences expect to discover, browse, audition and analyse archival audio resources. It will be of interest to content owners, academics & students, service providers, user groups, resource managers, system integrators, and designers and implementers of search & content analysis tools.
Keynotes speakers include Charles Leadbeater, a leading authority on innovation and creativity in organisations, and Andy Powell, Head of Development at the Eduserv Foundation.
Unlocking Audio 2 is supported by JISC and will also celebrate the successful end of the 2nd Archival Sound Recordings project, funded as part of the JISC Digitisation programme.
