Sound recordings are paged and handled only by the Archive staff to ensure both their proper care and their correct playback for researchers. For this reason, listening appointments are necessary.
The Archive audio room is equipped to handle playback of the many formats in the collections and can accommodate several listeners, including small classes or seminars.
The staff can also prepare copies of Archive audio materials for Stanford students, faculty, or staff to borrow for extended study or classroom presentation; at least 1-day lead time is required. Please inquire about policies governing copy requests for other than Stanford academic use.
Consultation on research projects is available and encouraged. Please contact the Archive to arrange an appointment.
Group visits may also be arranged by contacting the Archive.
