You want 24:7? Whittaker Library offers 24:7 Premium Online Resources

When we aren't here in person, the Whittaker Library offers many premium web resources for the benefit of our students and colleagues. These are the kind of quality websites that often just aren't available to 'the man on the street' - we pay for our community to have access to this material.

It's all there on our Library and IT website, and also accessible via Moodle and Mahara.  For example, Alexander Street Press alone offers music and video to stream, and scores to print out:-
Music Online equals:
Audio: 590,494 albums (7,850,143 tracks)
Video: 2,114 titles (1,994 hours)
Scores: 49,961 scores (1,070,107 pages)
Reference: 124,091 pages

Our students and colleagues are urged to drop in if they require more information about what's available.The RCS login is needed to access databases off-site.
