Variations Online Audio Reserves Library (VOARL) provides streamed audio access to music owned by the Yale University Libraries.

Instructors will need to complete the following steps:

  • 1. Consult with the Music Library's Public Services Librarian (Remi Castonguay) about deadlines and feasibility of processing requests for your course. Also consult the VOARL copyright policy (PDF) for materials that may or may not be included in OARL.
  • 2. Use this online form to request 3 items or less at a time. For request exceeding 3 items fill-out and return the VOARL Request List to the Public Services Librarian (Be sure to include composers, or artist, if more appropriate, composition titles, CD call numbers, and track numbers on that list).
  • 3. You will be notified when course materials have been uploaded to VOARL. Check all links to ensure that (a) files play back, (b) the correct audion selections play back, and (c) the correct descriptive information scrolls by during playback. Notify the Public Services Librarian of any problems.

Note: The library will also place the physical CD(s) on reserves. Audio clips are available only to students enrolled in the participating course, and reproducing or distributing clips is prohibited.
