Library's Sound Archives has a number of special collections in its
holdings. These holdings include "spoken word" as well as music. The
Library has begun to make available parts of these collections in a digital
format. We expect these collections to grow as more items are available
digitally. Due to copyright restrictions, some of the items in these
collections can only be accessed in the Main Branch at Copley Square.
Samples (30 second clips) of these items can be listened to remotely. If
you wish to listen to these items in their entirety, they may be accessed
at the Library. The collections currently available online are listed in
the drop down menu below. Select a collection, a creator from the list or
search through the collection by using the keyword search box.
