The Sound Archive is the only one of the many collections at the Humboldt-Universität to be directly based in the Helmholtz Centre for Cultural Techniques. This makes it possible to develop the collection with an interdisciplinary approach. In 2020, the Sound Archive will be relocated to the Humboldt Forum, a project which the Helmholtz Centre is involved in planning as the Humboldt-Universität’s representative. The archive’s relocation can therefore be planned with partners, and adjustments made to accommodate other activities.
The Sound Archive’s own website presents the collection’s history and holdings, its activities and the opportunities for research involving the archive:
The collection is managed by Herdis Kley.
