Library Soundscape

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • A soundscape created as part of my research project for Advanced Research in LIS (597): an acoustic ethnography of Rutherford Library North. For this project I collected environmental sounds and conducted interviews asking library users questions about their perception of experience with sound in the library.

    This soundscape comprises sounds recorded in Rutherford Library North, and is intended to exemplify the themes that emerged from analyses of interviews:
    Absence of Sound: i.e. no sounds, or some sound
    Presence of sound: i.e. general sounds, specific sounds, people sounds
    Music: i.e. type of music, or effect of music
    Library Activities: i.e. environmental interactions, or cognitive/mental activities
    Who: i.e. collective vs individual
    Where: i.e. classrooms, or lecture hall
