Step 1. Start Variations
- (Windows PC)
On the STC PCs in the Music Library, Variations is located in the same "Music" menu with the other departmentally sponsored software such as Finale and Sibelius. To find it, click on Start -> Programs -> Departmentally Sponsored -> Music -> Variations Digital Music Library. If you've installed Variations yourself, Variations should be in its own folder in your Start menu, and a shortcut to start Variations should be on your desktop.
Variations can be accessed from the start menu.
To find it, click on Start -> Programs -> (find the appropriate folder) -> Variations Digital Music
On the OS-X Macs in the Music Library, start Variations by clicking on the Departmentally Sponsored icon in the dock to open the Departmentally Sponsored window. In that window, double-click the Variations icon.
If you've installed Variations yourself, the Variations program icon will be in your Applications folder or wherever you installed it.
Step 2. Login with your IU network ID and passphrase
- After several moments, the Variations login window will appear:
- In the "User Name" field, enter your IU network ID.
- In the "password" field, enter your IU network passphrase.
- Press the "Login" button. After several moments, the Variations search window will appear.
If the login window does not accept your normal IU user name and passphrase, you may need to reset your IU passphrase at http://passphrase.iu.edu/.
An Alternative: Hyperlink Access
A particular spot in a Variations item can be accessed directly from a hyperlink. If you click on one of these links or on a Variations bookmark that has been exported to a web page, you will start Variations. After you log in, the audio or score you requested will be presented.
