The collection provides online streaming access to over 500,000 tracks (over 37,00 CDs) from more than 50 labels, consisting of the entire Naxos, Marco Polo and Da Capo catalogs, plus other licensed labels such as Bis and Chandos. The collection also offers jazz, folk, gospel, pop, rock, and spoken word. The library can be searched by composer, work and label; by keyword search and by a sophisticated advanced search engine with up to 10 combined search criteria. Resources offered include libretti and synopses of over 700 operas, a pronunciation guide for composer and artist names, and a glossary of musical terms. Playlists can be created by any user of the database. (Updated monthly)
