The CNRS Sound Archives provided to the European Library through Europeana Sounds

The CNRS Sound Archives provided to the European Library through Europeana Sounds. 

The audio archives recorded in the field of scientific research are scarcely accessible online. They raise several ethical and legal questions, as well as those about the relationships between different types of archives and the diversification of metadata formats. Through the Europeana Sounds project, for the first time, four research teams from the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) worked together with sound archives to build a new network of resources and skills.
