Variations2 is a four-year project that started in October of 2000 and will continue through 2004.
The funding for Variations2 is provided by the National Science Foundation and National Endowment for Humanities, through the Digital Libraries Initiative Phase 2 (DLI2) program.
Variations2 builds upon the work that has been done through the digital music library project entitled VARIATIONS, which has already digitized and provided access to over 7000 recordings and 200 scores at the Music Library of Indiana University.
The scope and the goals of Variations2 require a truly interdisciplinary approach, with research and development conducted in the areas of Usability, Metadata standards, Copyright issues, Music Instruction, System Design, and Networking.
The four main target user groups of this project include Music Faculty, Students, Librarians, and other, more general library user group.
Each section of the abstract work structure is linked to the corresponding time or page range in the recordings or scores.
…and selecting, and then viewing a score or listening to a recording of their choice (clicking on View or Listen brings up the Viewer or Player).
We would like to thank the National Science Foundation for providing its support to the project.
