G. Robert Vincent Voice Library


The G. Robert Vincent Voice Library is a collection of primary source sound material, found mainly in speech, performance, interview, and lecture format. The collection, stored primarily on reels of magnetic recording tape, contains the voices of over 100,000 persons from all walks of life. Items represent, in most cases, a migration from other recording formats, off-air broadcasts, or Voice Library original recordings. New items are mastered digitally and a retrospective digital re-mastering of existing analog recordings is underway. About 15,000 digital sound files have been created. Most items held in the public domain are available online in mp3 format.
