Using the Archive
The Archive provides a number of core services to aid patrons with their research including state-of-the art listening facilities, a large reading room for both individual and group study, duplication services, and reference assistance.
In broad terms, the Archive holds two categories of materials, commercial recordings; primarily consisting of 78rpm and LP discs; and unique collections, comprised of privately recorded material, radio broadcasts, and other rare or one-off recordings. Some of these recordings are digitially preserved but many are not, more about this can be found by following the request digital access link on the left side of this page.
Archive staff are happy to field reference questions you may have by phone or email, so please reach out if you have a question.
