The Recorded Sound Archives (RSA) part of FAU Libraries Special Collections and Digital Library is located in the Wimberly Library on FAU's Boca Raton campus.

Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.
