Web Site of the Week: Vincent Voice Library

Based at the Michigan State University Libraries, the Vincent Voice Library is the largest academic voice library in the United States. The majority of the items in the collection are stored on reels of magnetic recording tape, and they include speeches, interviews, and lectures. The library began as the private collection of G. Robert Vincent, who was a noted sound engineer and pioneer in the field of recorded sound. On this site, visitors can peruse the Library’s finding aids and their “Galleries” section. In the “Galleries” section, visitors can look over a selection of recordings by 20th century U.S. Presidents and their Michigan Writers Series. The presidents featured here include Warren G. Harding, Gerald Ford, and Harry S. Truman, among others. Moving on, the Michigan Writers Series “highlights the literary work of important writers who live in Michigan, including Terry Blackhawk, Patricia Clark, and Sarah Yettel. Overall, it’s a great resource, and one that merits several visits. [KMG]
