Subject: RE: Peter Kennedy's Folktrax recordings
Regarding Jim's posting, both the Tobar an Dualchais project (School of Scottish Studies and much more) and the ITMA projects have been heavily funded.
here, the BL has put lots of recordings online, although they don't seem to publicise this as much. As they now have most of the major field recording collections, the iniative has been left to them.
Generally, in England, the projects that have been funded have been to get manuscript collections online - Take 6, Baring Gould, and now the Full English.
