Public Domain Project

The public domain project is an independent community driven project to make historical audio and film records available to everybody. A lot of traditional archives make the same two failures: They don't work with the records, they just store them and second, they make it hard for you to listen to it or to use it
We correct both, we digitize our records and we provide easy access to it! That's how we understand an archive should work.
