If you need equipment for an upcoming audio or recording project, stop by the Main, Armstrong, and Music Library Circulation Desks — we have a variety of options to choose from:
Digital Voice Recorders: Small and portable, these can be used to record a lecture, meeting, or interview; then simply plug it into a USB port on a computer to download or upload files. Lapel microphones are also available for use with these recorders for higher quality sound recording.
iPods and iTalks: You know all about iPods, but did you know they’re available to borrow from the library? And if you would like to do an audio recording on one of our iPods, or on your personal iPod, we have iTalks for that purpose as well. We also have higher memory iPods that can be used for video projects.
USB Microphones: Microphone on small stand with USB connection; great for anyone who needs to record audio.
WebCams: Perfect for webcasting and face-to-face video conferencing.
Headsets with microphones: Another option for voice recording, or for use with Skype.
Computer speakers: Plug into a PC, laptop, or iPod
