British & Irish Sound Archives conference

The annual British & Irish Sound Archives (BISA) conference will take place this year at the National Library of Wales in beautiful Aberystwyth from 16-17 November.

Online registration is open for this year’s conference. Places are limited! To find details on how to register, see www.bisa-web.org/next-event

Besides a fascinating set of presentations, a tour of the Welsh screen and sound archive, and excellent opportunities to network and meet friends and colleagues from audiovisual institutions, the library is set in a stunning location, overlooking the town of Aberystwyth and Cardigan Bay. And this year there is a separate full day of training on audio archiving, on Thursday 15 November.

The BISA registration fees have been kept as low as possible, and the National Library of Wales have graciously provided use of their auditorium and other facilities.

Both events can be booked on the same registration form. Registration fees should be paid on arrival at the Library.

BISA formed in 2006 as a forum to celebrate and share knowledge on the care and promotion of sound collections throughout the British Isles. Their annual conference is a great opportunity for anyone passionate about sound heritage to share skills, enthusiasm, special interests and experience.
