Syracuse University's Archives and Records Management Department


Based in New York, in the U.S., Syracuse University's Archives and Records Management Department (ARM) is responsible for both preserving the historical record of the University and providing systematic control over the University's records from creation to final disposition.

The library has sound recordings and videos on topics relating to different geographic areas, different instruments, and different types of music. The music recordings are from countries such as South Africa, Uganda, Zimbabwe and many more.

The library also has a list of databases available through the Syracuse University Libraries. The database includes articles, images, data, and videos. Its streaming audio collection covers both contemporary and traditional music from around the world. Genres include reggae, worldbeat, neo-traditional, world fusion, African film, Bollywood, and Arab swing, and traditional music such as Indian classical, fado, flamenco, klezmer, zydeco, gospel, gagaku, and more.

The archival sound recordings are a result of a development project to increase access to the British Library Sound Archive's extensive collections. The British Library holds one of the world's foremost sound archives with a collection of over 3.5 million audio recordings. These come from all over the world and cover the entire range of recorded sound from music, drama and literature, to oral history, wildlife and environmental sounds.
