Libretto, a multimodal open-source variorum eBook reader -- App (Web Resources)
Title: Libretto, a multimodal open-source variorum eBook reader -- App
Author: Doug Reside
Abstract: Libretto is an Android app that patrons can use to read and study media-enhanced editions of texts and musical scores that exist in multiple versions using the newly-released ePub 3.0 ebook format and the Android and iOS mobile operating systems. The first release of the app (now available for free download on the Google Play store and from GitHub) includes a variorum (multiple version) edition of the libretto and score of the once enormously popular but now largely forgotten 1866 melodrama, The Black Crook. Using the software developed for this project, readers are able to read the libretto and sheet music in multiple versions and hear the associated music. We believe Libretto is the first open source software capable of presenting variorum and multimodal ebooks on an Android platform.
