World's Largest Natural Sound Library Is Now Online

World's Largest Natural Sound Library Is Now Online | Libraries | Scoop.it

The Macaulay Library, with over 150,000 recordings of 9,000 species is now digitised and has been uploaded to an online searchable database.

The library, housed at Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology, has made available over ten terabytes of recordings, with a runtime of 7513 hours of natural sounds. The collection, which began in 1929 has taken researchers dozens of years to accumulate. It currently holds recordings to a massive three-quarters of the world’s entire bird species, but it’s not all chirps and squawks, there’s also a decent helping of whale songs, insects, bears, elephants, primates and just about every other critter or creepy crawley that roams the earth.


The collection’s curator Greg Budney describes the archives as revolutionary, in terms of the speed and the breadth of material that is now accessible online. “This is one of the greatest research and conservation resources at the Cornell Lab,” said Budney. “And through its digitization we’ve swung the doors open on it in a way that wasn’t possible 10 or 20 years ago.”


“Our audio collection is the largest and the oldest in the world,” explained Macaulay Library director Mike Webster. “Now, it’s also the most accessible. We’re working to improve search functions and create tools people can use to collect recordings and upload them directly to the archive. Our goal is to make the Macaulay Library as useful as possible for the broadest audience possible.”


Now the team has digitised its massive archive, it’s focusing on collecting new material from amateur and professional recordists from around the world. The sounds are not only used by sound designers and filmmakers, but also by researchers, museums, or anyone interested in the sounds of nature. “Plus, it’s just plain fun to listen to these sounds,” explained Bundy. “Have you heard the sound of a walrus underwater?  It’s an amazing sound.”

Great tips for keeping up to date with your social media networks without spending all day. A positive approach to addressing messages that are negative in nature. That piece is valuable in itself.

Thank you Silvia. Well said. It's not just students who think anything on the net is there for the taking. I use my own media as much as possible, or Creative Commons images, but even with my knowledge it's a steep learning curve. Awareness is the first step.

‘Libraries are forever’: The future of libraries in the digital age

‘Libraries are forever’: The future of libraries in the digital age | Libraries | Scoop.it
We tend to think of libraries as collections. But the libraries of the future will be more about connections, said Harvard professor Jeffrey Schnapp on Wednesday. He spoke on a panel discussion for HUBweek, co-founded by The Boston Globe about the next generation of libraries. The event was hosted by Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society.

Six Reasons Why Kids Should Know How to Blog | Libraries | Scoop.it

In the digital age, kids need to have an understanding of what it means to be a responsible digital citizen.

To that end, Melbourne educator Jenny Luca made a commitment to help her students start blogging and to create ePortfolios. Here are six reasons why, at her school, these skills are now a high priority.
