Tech Tuesday: audio recorders

Did you know that we have three different types of audio recorders that you can check out from the library? These little beauties are perfect for recording:

  • A class lecture (as long as your professor is OK with it!) to take notes on later
  • An interview for a class assignment
  • A podcast to put online that will bring you fame and fortune (maybe…)
  • Notes on that story for your creative writing class or that article you’re writing for the school paper
  •  …and more!

Plus, you don’t have to worry about taking up space on your smartphone with large audio files. Here’s more info about the three types of audio recorders available for checkout at Hamersly:
