Variations3 grant funded by IMLS, September 20, 2005

The Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has announced funding of the Variation3 project. Read the IU press release describing the project, which will take Variations2 and turn it into a system that can be used by other institutions, a "digital music library in a box."

Variations2 replaces Variations, Summer 2005

Variations2, version 4 was released at the end of Spring semester, 2005. At that time, Variations2 replaced Variations as the tool for accessing online music course reserves, both audio and scores, at IU-Bloomington Cook Music Library. In addition, after some pilot projects during the summer, Variations2 is now available for home installation by IUB students whose classes require Variations2 use.

New features in version 4 include:

  • score annotation
  • improved listening drill tool for use with playlists
  • audio digitizer tool for putting newly digitized audio directly into Variations2

For more information on version 4 capabilities, visit the Variations2 User Guide. For instructions on home installation, visit the download page.
