Thousands of rare and unique audio recordings in Scotland are to be saved as part of a major preservation project.
The National Library of Scotland is to host one of 10 sound preservation centres in the UK being set up thanks to a £9.5 million National Lottery grant.
Led by the British Library, 'Unlocking Our Sound Heritage' will help preserve recordings threatened by physical degradation or no longer playable because equipment is obsolete.
Oral histories of the two world wars and stories of working life across different parts of Scotland are among the recordings to be saved.
