Borrowing Sound Effects CDs

Sound Effects CDs are located at the end of the Exhibition Catalogues, near the elevator. Students, staff, and faculty can take out as many as they want for one day loan.

Here's how to find the CD with the sound effects that you want:

  1. Search the Sound Ideas website for the sound effect you're looking for, for example, "dogs barking".
  2. Use the chart below to see if the Library has the series that the sound effect is on. The Library does not have all the CDs listed on the Sound Ideas website.
  3. If the Library does have the series, note the disc numbers.
  4. Find the disc on Level 1 of the library - near the elevators.
