Music: Department Recordings Service

Program Description

Starting in September 2024, the Library will provide streaming access to new recordings of student performances made by the Music Department.

  • Access to these student performances will be via the Library’s Aviary platform, which streams audio and video content from the Library’s digital collections.
  • Music Department faculty and students can search for performances on the main Aviary page or browse within the UCSB Music Department Recordings Collection.
  • Recordings will be able to be streamed or downloaded by request for a period of three years in total and files will be deleted on a quarterly basis.
  • Associated programs from performances and information about performances will be accessible to the general public and searchable within the Aviary platform.
  • To ensure the rights of the performers, recordings will only be uploaded if a release form is completed by the student.
