Audio Visual Archive and Library
The phonograph records, audial records, music scores and photographs donated by Ali Rıza Avni Tınaz consist most of the items archived in the collection brought together in 2010. The archive has grown bigger thanks to the bachelor’s, master’s and PhD dissertations, scientific research project reports, field researches and the video recordings of the musical performances. Today still new data is added to the archive.
When the collection is totally archived it will be a rare resource open for the access of students, scholars and researches with more than 20000 voice recordings, almost 1000 unique photographs, 1500 books on Turkish music and more then 35000 musical scores.
