Along with a belt change as suggested you may want to adjust or simply replace the belt tensioner while you are at it.

A cheap but effective tool to have in your toolbox is a mechanics stethoscope. This can help you sort out specific noises while the car is running. Check all accessories for undue noises, such as alternator, water pump, power steering pump, air pump and AC compressor. Any one oc these could be contributing to the noise and a stethoscope will help pin point the problem
