The UWM Libraries recording booth is located in the Media and Reserve Library, lower level, west wing. The small room holds 1-2 people comfortably. The room is intended for use by members of the UWM community who need to rehearse speeches, conduct online or phone interviews, record audiovisual presentations or other similar projects. The booth is not available for use as a quiet study space, music rehearsal space or for other non-recording or non-vocal uses. Use of the noise-quieting recording booth is for educational purposes only. Please note, the recording booth is not soundproof.
The booth is available to those who are eligible to check out materials from the Media and Reserve Library. (i.e. UWM students, faculty and staff, UW-System borrowers, and Friends of the Library.) You must present your UWM ID/borrowing card when using the booth. The booth may be reserved or used on a walk-in basis for up to four (4) hours at a time if not reserved by anyone in advance.
The recording booth is wheelchair accessible and contains overhead lighting, a folding table and a chair.
Basic recording equipment is also available for checkout at the Media and Reserve service counter. This includes tripods, video cameras and audio recorders.
