Music Center 2.0 release

Date: July 13, 2022

The content and features in the OhioLINK Music Center 2.0 will not change significantly with this platform change. It is primarily an update to the underlying technology.

  • Users will see an updated UI that is in the OhioLINK "family" of local platforms, similiar to the EJC and ETD Center.
  • Users will be able to authenticate to Music Center either on-campus through an institutional IP address, or off-campus through a proxy. If your library uses EZproxy, please install the Music Center stanza from the OhioLINK Platform EZproxy Information page.
  • The Music Center base URL is unchanged and remains
  • Old "handle" URLs such as "" from the legacy Music Center will no longer work. (OhioLINK does not control the "handle" URL system.) As such, we have updated the Music Center items to use RAVE URLs.
  • OhioLINK will update the affected Central Catalog records on July 13th with the new RAVE URLs for Music Center items. The RAVE URL syntax for Music Center items is:

where NNNNN is the unique item number at the end of the handle URL.


Legacy URL: ""


  • The initial release does not include usage statistics. A later release will include COUNTER 5 compliant usage statistics. The new usage statistics will be available in the Member Portal. 
  • Music Center 2.0 no longer includes an OAI-PMH feed.

Flash Player Replacement 

On December 17, 2020 we will replace the Flash player with a new streaming player. The functionality of the new player is slightly different. It does not require a browser plug in.
