If you’re in search of sound effects, here’s something great coming from the BBC. Their library of more than 16,000 sound effects is now available, and you can download anything you like for free.

The library contains 16,016 sounds and it’s easily searchable. You can search by term and arrange the results by description, category, duration or file name. All sound effects are available in WAV format and the BBC has released them under the RemArc licence. This means that all the sound effects are BBC copyright, but you can use them for “personal, educational or research purposes.”

This is truly a great move from the BBC and I believe many creators and educators will find this library useful. If you also need images, I remind you that NASA, Europeana and the Met Museum offer impressive collections for free.

For now, the BBC Sound Effects is in beta, but you can start downloading and using the sounds you like. You can access the library on this link and check out what they have to offer.
