Using the Equipment

If you have not used the audio recording equipment before and would like help getting started we recommend that you make a Tech Cafe appointment online or at the Reference Desk. For help with using the Audacity audio editing software, you can find free tutorials and lessons on Lynda.com (a digital learning resource provided by the Sewickley Public Library).
