Streaming Reserves Centralization Pilot

Beginning Spring Quarter 2011 the Music Library will partner with the Media Center in Odegaard Library to centralize streaming audio and video reserves services. The goal of the pilot is to offer the same high quality streaming service you are familiar with while reducing duplication of efforts within the Libraries.

What does this mean for you?

  • Streaming reserves: The Music Library will continue to accept streaming reserve request forms and audio materials to stream. Audio materials with forms will be delivered by student courier to the Media Center at 10:30 and 2:30 daily. Audio materials with forms may also be dropped off directly to the Media Center. NOTE: In order to allow for your streaming audio requests to be processed, we request that you drop off materials one week prior to the date that you need them made available online. Materials will be processed in the order they are received.
  • Print and electronic reserves: The pilot will not effect print reserves, electronic document reserves, and media materials on reserve in the Listening Center. They will continue to be processed and available in the Music Library.

  • Streaming videos: If you are interested in having videos streamed for your class, please email or visit this page:

Music Library staff member Heather Spence will move to the Media Center to assist with this pilot. The pilot will run through the Spring Quarter and will be re-evaluated during the summer. Please contact or Music Library staff with any questions you have regarding the pilot.
