Digitised Sound for Scottish Musos

Karen just gave a talk to students on the BA Scottish Music course, to introduce key streamed sound resources.

Two directly relevant ones -
  1. Tobar an Dualchais (free)
  2. British Library Sounds (Whittaker Library subscribes)
And two mainly classical ones, so you can see what classical musos have done with your Scottish tunes!
  1. Naxos Music Library
  2. Classical Music Library (Alexander Street Press)
See Karen's Storify story about all four databases - here.

Karen's favourite social media tools

Karen introduced Diigo, an excellent social media tool for saving your favourites 'in the cloud'.  This is Karen's Scottish music Diigo list.

If you Tweet, there are other useful websites that you might benefit from - Tweetdeck makes it easier to follow scheduled conversations; and the Buffer app allows you to schedule tweets throughout the day.
