Collection description and availability
Collection description

The Finnish National Sound Archive is Finland's most extensive archive of public recordings. It contains most Finnish audio recordings produced since 1901. The archive also includes several unique music collections obtained from private parties.

The Finnish National Sound Archive is accrued through legal deposit copies, procurements and donations. The archive contains both music and voice recordings.

You can study copies of the recordings in the Music Library's listening room. Information about the music recordings is available through the Viola database and information concerning voice recordings can be found in the Fennica database.
