Join us for a focus day exploring two key skills involved in caring for sound archives: getting copyright right and sharing sound recordings online.
The morning session will offer guidance on copyright issues relating to sound archives including the law, risk management, and the permission-seeking process.
The morning session will be led by Victoria Stobo, Postgraduate Researcher in Archives, Digitisation & Copyright at CREATe within the School of Law at the University of Glasgow, and Fred Saunderson, Intellectual Property Specialist at the National Library of Scotland.
The afternoon session will explore ways that sound collections can be shared online.
Joel Eaton – musician, lecturer, creative developer and digital media consultant (formerly of Jisc Digital Media) - will share best practice guidelines for making sounds available online and examples of how to achieve low-cost online access. Colleagues from Scran and Tobar an Dualchais will present case studies of their experiences sharing sounds online.
Connecting Scotland’s Sounds is a project funded by Esmee Fairbairn from 2016 to 2017 to champion the preservation and sharing of Scotland’s audio heritage.
The Connecting Scotland's Sounds focus days are designed for small groups and places are limited; we would encourage you to sign up to events as soon as possible so that you don’t miss out. Please email Amy on firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s a training day for which you’re not available, but that you'd like to attend if it were to be repeated in spring/summer 2017.
Terms and conditions
Connecting Scotland’s Sounds training events are free to attend, but we would like to ensure that all participants make a contribution to the programme in the form of feedback. In order to carry out meaningful evaluation for our funders Esmee Fairbairn, we ask that you make time to fill out any surveys that you are sent requesting your feedback.
If there are any events where less than 8 people have booked to attend, the event will be cancelled. If an event has to be cancelled, Connecting Scotland’s Sounds cannot be held liable for any pre-booked travel or accommodation. Booking deadlines are set for two weeks before the event is due to take place, and at this stage confirmations will be issued to all those who have signed up to attend.
We welcome participation in our training programmes by students and other interested parties, but if an event is oversubscribed we will prioritise places for participants who are currently actively caring for Scotland’s sound archives.
