Music Online Learning: Home

A message of support

The USU Libraries is here to support your transition to teaching and learning online. This guide is a collection of resources to help you get started, and your Music Librarian can help you find and integrate materials into your specific courses.

This Musicology Now blog post may be helpful: So You Need To Teach Online: Music History and Music Theory Edition (Emily H. Green and Megan Lavengood, 3/16/2020).

This guide contains several types of resources:

  • A selected list (below) of normally-subscription-only databases and music teaching and research tools that are currently offering free institutional access. This may be an exciting opportunity for instructors and students to explore resources we don't typically have access to.
  • USU Libraries tutorials that can easily be shared with students to help them learn how to use the Libraries' resources.
  • USU Libraries' streaming A/V, plus tips about how to navigate our platforms.
  • A list of free and open streaming A/V, suitable for use in history, education, theory, and performance courses.
  • A list of other free and open music resources that can be used in a range of courses as teaching or research material.

Resources with options for free institutional access

Many resources that normally require an institutional subscription are offering extended free trial access during the COVID-19 pandemic. Contact Rachel if you are interested in any of these or other resources for your research or teaching needs.
