Blog topic: Sound recordings
Please welcome Christopher Walker to the Stanford Libraries and the Archive of Recorded Sound.
The Archive of Recorded Sound with support from the Monterey Jazz Festival has just released the full run of the Monterey Jazz Festival programs and posters to Searchworks, and better yet, they are world accessible.
Recently, at the Archive of Recorded Sound we have had discussions with many students about finding more than just the expected in Searchworks. In this case digitized archival sound recordings. Many of the sound recordings we work to preserve and provide access to are available streaming to the Stanford community and a few are even available to anyone interested in the world. Following are two video tutorials on how to filter search results to streaming archival sound recordings in Searchworks.
The Archives is excited to share that an audio recording of a Rosa Parks press conference, held at Arroyo House at Stanford University on February 18, 1990, was recently digitized and is now accessible worldwide via Stanford Libraries' discovery platforms.
