The CREM-CNRS located at the University of Nanterre manages the sound archive of the former Paris Musée de l'Homme. This collection focused on ethnomusicology includes several thousands of 78 rpm records and LPs, as well as photographies and paper documents such as commercial catalogues of record labels from the late 1920's to the 1960's. This collection of several hundreds of catalogues is focused on non-western music released by the major Western record companies (HMV, Columbia, Odéon, Pathé, Polydor...) as well as some local and less-known labels. Indexing, digitizing and sharing such a collection raise several methodological, technical and legal issues we would like to discuss.
