Course Reserves

The Crouch Fine Arts Library offers course reserve services for music courses, and for any other courses that use audiovisual materials. A kiosk computer is available at the Service Desk for viewing lists of all materials placed on reserve for music courses.

  • Items without links are available for check-out at the Service Desk.

  • Items with links have been digitized and are available online in Variations. The list for each course also appears in its Blackboard pages.

To place materials on reserve, instructors should contact Ben Johansen, Audio and Digital Projects Coordinator (, 254.710.6733).

Digital Reserves

All audio recordings and some scores placed on reserve are digitized and made available through the Variations system. Audio can be streamed quickly and easily through your Internet browser using links listed in each course's Blackboard page. Links are also provided there to view scores and to listen to music using the Variations Client software, which offers more functionality than the browser version. For more information, see the Variations Guide.

Physical Reserves

Physical Reserve materials (mainly books, large scores, and video recordings) are available at the CFAL Service Desk (Moody Library Building, Level 3) and may be checked out for a three-hour loan period.
