Resources to Borrow

In an effort to support a number of initiatives in libraries through the region, the School Library System has put together a high quality podcasting kit that is available to borrow by any of the libraries in the region. 

This kit provides the needed hardware to record audio at a high quality level, allowing districts to focus on the content and curriculum and avoid a struggle with hardware. Because each district has unique software and networking, the kit does not include that end of the process. So a district borrowing the kit does need to supply the computer and the software to record and the kit would simply connect with a USB cord. 

The kit includes the mixing board, two microphones and stand, two monitor headphones, and the cable needed to connect everything.

  • HEiL sound PR-40 Dynamic Studio Microphone: The Heil PR 40 naturally captures the human voice in all podcast applications.

The PR 40 features excellent rear noise rejection, making it perfect for recording at home and in spaces with no sound isolation. With the warm and smooth wide frequency response of the PR 40, hear your voice and podcast sound like it never has before.
