The Sonic Histories of Cork City (SHOCC) Project is an interdisciplinary research project between members of UCC Library's Special Collections and UCC's Department of Music. The SHOCC Project explores relationships between sound, space and history and investigates what locations in Cork City might have sounded like in various moments in the city's past. In using the SHOCC Project as a platform Special Collections can reach different groups not necessarily accessible through previously traditional methods of teaching & learning. In addition emerging technologies provide Special Collections with a means to showcase & disseminate its collections in different ways.
