For many years, students could listen to their music assignments only in the fine arts library. This past year, the library made these listening assignments available to students online. Audio Reserves 2Go expands the listening options even further, by allowing students to check out the popular Apple iPod portable digital media players.
The entire semester's listening assignments for all music courses are loaded onto the iPods, and students can easily listen to them with headphones. Students involved in the Audio Reserves 2Go pilot program in December said that the ability to check out iPods with the listening assignments on them has totally changed how they go about studying the music. With the iPods, students can listen while walking between classes or at other times when being in the library or logged on to a computer would not be possible. The program currently offers 12 iPods for students to check out.
The Audio Reserves 2Go program was made possible by funds from the Library Fellows, an organization of dedicated Baylor friends who generously support the libraries.
