Streaming Audio Course Reserves:
Information for Faculty and TAs
Streaming Audio Course Reserves are based on recordings, either LP or CD, held in the collection of the UCSB Library. We adhere to the Music Library Association Statement on the Digital Transmission of Electronic Reserves. Request for online listening may be done directly in the Course Reserves System. The directions are found on the How to Place Material on Course Reserves page.
At Instructor Course Tools – Add Reserve Items:
Select the icon for streaming audio.
This link will take you to the web form for streaming audio. Please give as much complete and correct information as possible. Incomplete forms may delay processing.
The library streaming databases may be linked or material held in the Music Library collection can be digitized. The music library may limit the type and number of listening items posted online based on class size and length of the selections. For small classes and seminars requiring lengthy selections such as complete operas, we can place required recordings on reserve in the music library.
Please submit requests at least two weeks before you plan to assign the listening. Requests are processed in the order in which they are received.
We will digitize from a commercial recording owned by a faculty member if a library copy is not available. A copy of the recording will be ordered for the library. We will digitize from CD compilations provided by faculty only when complete track listings and source information are provided so that we may purchase a copy of the material for the library, or substitute a library owned performance of the same item.
Please contact Music Course Reserves with questions about streaming audio reserves.
