The SoundBox Collection has been made possible through the generous donations of tapes and equipment such as reel-to-reels and cassette players. This support together with the SpokenWeb SSHRC Partnership Grant has allowed our team at UBCO to process the collection so that the public may enjoy the works of many Canadian writers. If you are interested in donating tapes or equipment to the SoundBox Collection at UBCO, you can email Karis Shearer at
