Plans for a digital library at Indiana University were recently announced to support research and education in the music field.   The grant, worth $3 million, is from Digital Libraries Initiative-Phase 2, a multi-agency federal program with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The four-year grant will allow IU information technology specialists, researchers, librarians, and music experts to establish a music library testbed, develop computer applications for education and research in the field of music, and seek answers to the issues surrounding music-related intellectual property rights. The library will allow students and faculty to have access to various styles and genres of music.  Computerized music keyboards are available to students in order for score notations to be improvised and viewed.  

"Information technology is changing the landscape of modern universities," stated IU President Myles Brand.  "This project will help expand the impact of technology beyond its traditional core in the sciences by developing innovative applications for teaching and research in music."

"Information technology provides a wealth of opportunities to advance the frontiers of knowledge in the arts and humanities," Brand said. "Indiana University is pleased to receive this award and applauds the collaborative efforts of the School of Library and Information Science, the School of Music, the University Libraries, and the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology."

All applications for the digital music library will be designed by the faculty of the IU School of Music.  One of the goals of this project is to move digital libraries into a new phase beyond creating, organizing, and disseminating digital objects.  IU is looking to immerse digital content in the education and research process.

"This project builds on the strengths of Indiana University," said Suzanne Thorin, Ruth Lilly University Dean of University Libraries. "The university's digital library program seeks to make the university's unique resources broadly available and to build on university strengths. Creating a world-class digital music library to complement the world-class School of Music is a perfect fit."

The library will be available to students, faculty, librarians, and library patrons at IU.  The system will also be available to institutes involved in the research: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Massachusetts-Amherst and Northwestern University in the United States, King's College, Loughborough University and Oxford University in the United Kingdom,  and Waseda University in Japan.

IU is one of the 23 members of the Digital Library Federation, a group of research libraries that are filtering in the use of digital technologies into their system.
