Access to Audio Recordings on Collections Search
The collections search function in our new website provides access to a greatly increased selection of material from IWM's collections. While we have received a good deal of very positive feedback on the features of the site, a small number of problems have also become evident.
One of these relates to the provision of direct access to audio recordings. We are therefore having to temporarily withhold access to audio recordings through the online collections search so that some data and technical issues can be resolved.
We anticipate being able to progressively restore access to the majority of digitised material and hope to have the first batch available before the end of 2011.
We regret that this may cause some inconvenience to researchers who have been using the audio access feature. If you have an urgent need to gain access to particular recordings in the short term, please visit our Collections Enquiry Service, where you can either book an appointment to listen to them in the Research Room at IWM London or send an enquiry and we will try to provide access by other means.
