    Abstract:
    The New York Public Library (NYPL) requests a Level II Start Up grant with which it proposes to develop MOVER [a Multimodal Open-Source Variorum eBook Reader], a mobile "app" that patrons will 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 mobile operating system. Project staff will test this software by creating 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 will be able to read the libretto and sheet music in multiple versions, while concurrently hearing the music associated with any particular line of the text or score.
    Notes:
    The development of a prototype mobile application to allow users to study multimedia variorum editions of musical theater plays.
