The library has a large collection of  Sound effect CDs from the BBC - they are shelved in the compact shelving on Floor 1 - you will need a shelf number to locate them  so search in the catalogue for BBC and Sound effects and you should see a list of CDs held by the library and can check their number .  We have two main collections 

BBC sound fxcd 

BBC sound effects

You can also search for particular sound effects in Summon (this is not always guaranteed to work but is worth a go)  Enter a key word which describes the effect you are looking for e.g weather  and then look for content type in the left hand column , click on More  -   you should then see an option to restrict to Audio Recording.  Select  this by clicking  and then  click on the Apply button at the top


You should then find a list of CDs in the library with the sound effect you are looking for.  (you may also see a few classic pop songs as well!)
