Every *installation* of R has a "standard library". If you
install packages that's where they go by default. Some multi-user
installations make their help pages available on the net. The
installation at the Technical University at Lund contains something
called R.audio. Since this appears not to be something from CRAN, it
might be a good idea to follow the link in the Author field (to
Henrik's R.classes bundle).
