Squealing alternator belt?

Hi all

Today when my clio bonnet catch was looked at they noted a squealing noise, which i think they said was the alternator belt (sound right??- i'm not technically minded at all!). I too have noticed this faintish squealing noise, not very loud but noticable when the engine's running.

Can anyone give me more info on how it works and why it would be doing this? And what should i get done about it? The car was serviced less then 1000miles ago, the 72000 mile service (although i can't be certain what was done as it was before i owned it and it wasn't at a renault garage so there's no record).

Thanks so much in advance- sorry for being so clueless!

Currently in ribbon's garage:
Renault Clio Expression 2002 1.5DCI (65bhp)
