I have never used this site, and don't know what I'm doing. But I would like to convert 96 cubic yards of small crushed limestone to tons, please. thank you.

According to Reade, pulverized limestone has a density of 87 pounds/cubic foot.
96 cubic yards * 27 = 2,592 cubic foot
2,592 cubic foot * 87 pounds/cubic foot = 225,504 pounds
225,504 pounds / 2000 = 112.752 ton [short, US]
They also list broken limestone at 97 pounds/cubic foot, so change the above if that is what you need.
The reason this is not yet on the site is because every substance has a different conversion factor, and I have not yet finished researching enough to put up on the site.
