There are three ways to take advantage of podcasting tools and services at Columbia University Libraries: Podcast Club, partnerships, and equipment lending. Community members who wish to borrow recording equipment or to use our recording studio must attend a Podcasting Orientation. Anyone who wishes to use the Libraries’ hosting and publishing services for their podcasts must also go through a competitive application process and be selected for a partnership. For more information, see our partnerships and orientations page.

Want to try your hand at podcasting but not sure where to start? Join the Libraries’ podcast club this fall to explore audio as a new way to tell stories and share research along with fellow students! Over the course of an eight-week project, teams of students will have the opportunity to explore unique items from the Libraries’ archives and Rare Books and Manuscript collections selected and shared by Columbia librarians and curators.

Podcast Club students will be taught to use professional recording equipment and software and will be given access to the Libraries’ new podcast recording studio. Whether you’re interested in script writing, narration, sound editing, music, or digital publishing, there’s a way to get involved and learn something new through producing podcasts together.
