The core use case we're interested in (which appears to be the same one
this software was designed for) is to support streaming music reserves. In
other words, staff catalog and upload music and there's an easy interface
that allows people to listen to music for specific classes that's access
controlled as appropriate. It also lets you do stuff like diagram the
structure of the music or read scanned scores.

There is a web interface, but the functionality is not the same as the
Windows and MacOS client/staff setup at this time
