Audio Collection: Digital Audio Reserves


Kristin Heath
Music & Catalog Librarian



Digital Audio Reserves is a service that the Arts Library provides to faculty who would like to allow their students 24/7 access to course listening. By providing links to streaming RealAudio files through Blackboard, students will be able to hear digital recordings of assigned works anytime.

As long as students have a computer and internet access, they can listen from anywhere. The music is copyright protected, so users are able to listen to it via streaming technology but cannot download it. Access is restricted by Carnegie Mellon IP address. Users will need to install RealPlayer and AnyConnect on their machines in order to listen to music.
