Audio Editing Software

There are several free software tools you can download and install on your computer.

Audacity
Easy-to-use audio recording and editing program, recommended above all others.

Audio Recordings in the Library

Milner's CD collection is located on the sixth floor of the library. LPs are located in storage, but you can request them through the catalog. In the item record, click on "Request Item," log in to your VuFind account, and submit your request. You'll get an e-mail when the LP is ready for you, and you can pick it up at the circulation desk.

CDs are organized by Library of Congress call numbers, just like the books, and their call numbers begin with "Audio CD." LPs have call numbers that start with LP or DISC. Both CD and LP formats show up in the catalog if you search for films or videos, so be sure to look at the call number to help you distinguish between the two formats.
