The "specific conditions" are very restrictive:
(1) the library or archives has, after a reasonable effort, determined that
an unused replacement cannot be obtained at a fair price; and
 (2) any such copy or phonorecord that is reproduced in digital format is
not made available to the public in that format outside the premises of the
library or archives in lawful possession of such copy.

Other sections (not all) of Section 108 exclude music.
