Welsh library's 'race against time' to save recordings

The National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth has become part of a new sound archive network.

It will become one of 10 "sound preservation centres" that will work with the British Library to protect rare and unique recordings as part of a £18.8m project.

In Wales alone, 5,000 items will be digitised.

Lona Mason, visual images librarian at the library, said it was "a race against time" to save the recordings.
