LARM.fm is an archive and a work space

LARM.fm is not only a digital archive for radio and television. It also offers various search tools and is a work space for cooperation in research and teaching. Users can organise, annotate and save collections of digital objects from the archives.

They can link directly to the files, share collections with other (groups of) users and add new information to the data so the work space is collectively enriched.

Gaining access, gaining skills

Users can access LARM.fm through their institutional WAYF-login, if the institution has a license. Every Internet user without login can use the search tools and see the metadata, but is not able to stream or open the files.

We work continuously at improving LARM.fm and the functionalities available. New materials are added on a regular basis as new radio and television programmes are broadcast (or old materials digitised). The user manual is also regularly updated and new tutorials are being developed.

"If a colleague is working with a specific historical topic, it is really rare that you don’t find something in a LARM.fm search. LARM.fm is an excellent place to get a broad overview of events in our past.”

Mette Simonsen Abildgaard

“I highly recommend LARM.fm for students and researchers from any field, who are interested in drawing on auditory material for their work.”

Morten Michelsen

“In order to find out what music DR did actually play in the early years, the LARM search function has been extremely helpful.”

The early beginnings of LARM.fm

LARM Audio Research Archive was an interdisciplinary project, the goal of which was the production of a digital infrastructure to facilitate researchers’ access to the Danish radiophonic cultural heritage. Read more about the LARM project.

The LARM Project is documented in the publication LARM Audio Research Archive. The project ended in 2014, and the research infrastructure LARM.fm was handed over to DIGHUMLAB.

LARM Radio was a podcast radio produced by students, researchers and radio enthusiasts under the project LARM Audio Research Archive from 2010 to 2014.

LARM Radio was a platform for experiments within radio and sound production. The ambition was to develop a radio that asked insightful questions,  created new knowledge and explored how thoughts, ideas and research may take an audible form.
