How to access the music
In order to access the music CDs,
This will bring up the webpage with the music tracks.
- go to the Library Online Catalog to access the Book Catalog (one of the choices in the drop down box under 'Libraries and Collections' is 'Online Music')
- search for the music by music piece, country, composer, or other key terms
- click on the title to see the catalog record and what else is contained on the CD
- click on the URL (http://...) next to 'Electronic link'
(NOTE: This will NOT work unless you are in the library building or in classrooms or offices on the Winona State campus. Or if you use VPN (PC) or Cisco Systems Client (Mac) ).
Remember your headphones so as not to disturb other students. Headphones are available at the Information Gallery window.
- Click on the track you wish to hear and wait while your player brings up the music. If you don't see the music start up right away, be aware that the player window might be behind your other windows.
Temporarily uncatalogued music cds
The Library is cognizant that the U. S. Copyright Law (Title 17 U.S. Code) governs the making of reproductions of copyrighted materials. Consequently, these sound files have been prepared to provide instructional support for students enrolled at Winona State University and only tracks from recordings owned by Krueger Library are listed in the Digital Music Project. Copying, downloading, redistribution, modification and/or archiving of these files is prohibited.
There are two models for digital music among libraries. One is the e-reserve system set up by University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Pennsylvania State University and in this state by St. Cloud. In this system, the access to the music is limited only to authenticated students in individual classes, who lose this privilege once the class is over.
Indiana University, however, set up the Variations (and now Variations2) project at the William and Gayle Cook Music Library. In this model, the distribution of the streamed sound is limited to the music library, part of the Main Library, and one classroom. Variations 2 allows the access in all the computer labs on campus. The recordings in the Music Library's collection can be found by searching the online catalog. Fogler Library, at the University of Maine, allows access to their Listening Center Online to students and faculty on their campus network.
The Digital Music Library Project here at Krueger Library has the music tracks only available within the Library or other campus buildings, has the additional protection of streaming audio, and has each track listed separately. The purpose of the project is primarily for educational use: to allow the students in the Music Department access to the pieces for their research projects.
