Hi Rich,
WELCOME TO LIBRIVOX! :) We’re pleased to see your first Librivox post here at the nonfiction collection. I’ll try to guide you through the steps in making your first recording. Essentially, there are three things you will want to do:

1)Make a short recording to check out the settings on your recording equipment. Instructions for this can be found here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test. You will be reading a short paragraph which begins ”People were pleased to find . . .” This reading is NOT an audition (we accept all readers); it’s just to be sure your recording equipment is all in order. (I did the 1-minute test exactly like this when I joined Librivox in 2008.) When your 1-minute test is complete, you will want to post it on this Librivox forum: viewforum.php?f=21. A volunteer with recording expertise will listen and help you along. When they say you’re ready to do an actual recording, you’re ready for step two.

2) Pick a public domain selection to read: I see you already have something in mind, which is good! I took a look at the “Girl’s Own Paper,” and it has several interesting non-fiction articles to choose from. I would recommend choosing just one for your first recording. The articles entitled “Every Girl a Business Woman,” which tells how to write a business letter is nonfiction, as are “The Amateur Church Organist,” and “Fashionable Embroidery.” If you would rather read a short story from the Girl’s Own Paper ( which include “Merle’s Crusade” and “The Shepherd’s Fairy,”) that is ok, too, but you will then want to submit your recording to the short story collection. If your selection is nonfiction, you are ready for step three:

3) Send up your finished public domain nonfiction recording (less than 60 minutes in length) to the current volume of the nonfiction collection. Right now volume 29 is still open, so you would send it here. If volume 29 is full by the time you finish your recording, just look for Volume 30 of the non-fiction collection under “readers wanted, short works, poetry and prose”: viewforum.php?f=19. We will proof listen your recording and add it to the collection!

Good luck.! If you have any questions along the way, just post here, and we will answer them.

Best wishes, Sue

Hi Jim, Thanks so much for contributing this history of the CIA building and building site to the 29th volume! :) I took a quick listen, and I thought the part about the Civil War uses of the site was particularly interesting. You read well; I'm not sure I had ever listened to your voice. Our dedicated proof listener, Hugh, will be along shortly to formally PL. Would you want to do a quick reload in mono beforehand? Thanks,

HughGil

Hi Jim,

PL is okay, except for the stereo. I'll spot check when you re-submit as mono.
