How to Access Digital Audio Reserves

We are offering audio reserves in a new way through Canvas as of Fall 2018 (streaming-only tracks using Google Drive music player). The RealPlayer instructions below are a back-up plan until we are confident our new method is stable. 

1. Downloading RealPlayer:

You will first need RealPlayer installed on your computer. This can be downloaded for free.

Download RealPlayer for Windows

Download RealPlayer for Mac


2. Listening (once RealPlayer is installed):

Click on URL (on the Blackboard site). If prompted, enter Andrew ID and Password. This will launch RealPlayer and you should begin hearing the playlist.


Off-Campus/Wireless Access

Please note that off-campus/wireless access will require authentication through AnyConnect. Info and links regarding the installation of AnyConnect are as follows:

AnyConnect is a university-wide product, please address all questions about off-campus/wireless access to Computing Services.
