Closure of North West Sound Archive

Posted on 10/12/2014 by


From the North West Sound Archive website:

It is with great regret that owing to financial circumstances, the North West Sound Archive is no longer able to continue as a going concern and on the 26 November, 2014, the NWSA Council made the difficult decision to wind up the organisation in early 2015.

In doing so, the Council recognised the importance of ensuring where possible, that recordings held at the Archive are preserved for future generations. Arrangements are being made to transfer the collections to the appropriate local authority archive service where they will be preserved in controlled climatic conditions and hopefully will, in due course be made available for access by the public.

The NWSA regretfully will no longer be able to provide training or a copying or listening service but will be available in the interim period to offer advice.
