Libraries and organizations

We believe that access to the best sources is crucial to the development of tomorrow’s great musicians. For this reason, the IJM offers affordable rates for libraries and organizations, whether they are small institutions, large universities, high schools, or everything in between.

The IJM collection is continually growing. Each year we add hundreds of items to our archives at no additional cost to you.

Institutional participation

The IJM is an affordable, high-quality complement to educational institutions’ libraries, providing their music students with access to thousands of digital resources—including articles, interviews, videos, and lessons—that will inspire and give them a deeper insight into leading performers from around the world. At the same time, it enables teachers to incorporate important academic content into their classes.

Instructions for remote access

How to allow access to your students:

  1. Send us your institution’s IP ranges.
  2. In order for the IJM to work well with your proxy, you need to take into account the 17 URLs in our network:
  3. Finally, please test access from an off-campus Internet connection to make sure it works.

Contact us for pricing and setup.

Students and faculty

If your school or library is a participant, you will get access to all IJM content without having to log in at all.

How to log in from off-campus?

Option 1: Log in from your library’s website.

Your school’s library website may have an off-campus login link. To use this feature, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your school’s library website.
  2. Search for words like “Databases, A-Z List, eResources, Off-Campus Access,” or something similar.
  3. If they subscribe to the IJM, you will be able to click on the link to the IJM on your library’s website.
  4. A window should pop up that allows you to log in with your university-issued username and password (the username and password your school gave you to access online courses and school email).

Note: Not sure what your university credentials are? They are usually the username and password you use to check your university email or access your courses. If you still can’t log in, check with your school’s library or IT department to make sure you are using the correct login information.

Option 2: Other access methods.

You are having trouble figuring out how to access the IJM, even after reviewing the steps above? Talk to your librarian. Your librarian is an excellent source for making sure you find the resources you need as quickly as possible, and they often have the most up-to-date information on how to log in from off-campus.

Automatic access on-campus

If you are on your university campus, you may already be connected to the IJM. Here’s how to check:

  1. Access any item in the IJM, and click on the “View full content” button.
  2. If a new page with whole content appears, it means that you are already connected through your university and can access all IJM content.
  3. If the above does not happen, but you are on campus, contact your library for the fastest solution to access the resources.

If your school does not yet participate in the IJM, talk to your librarian and encourage them to contact us to set up access.
