Naxos Music Library

Did you know the JCU Library subscribes to an online music database?

The Naxos Music Library contains a large number of albums from Naxos's CD library, as well as some CDs from other labels as well.  You can listen to entire albums online, through the JCU subscription.

Genres include classical music, jazz, folk, world, spoken word, Chinese music and even some pop recordings.

The best part is - the Naxos database is searchable through One Search.

Do a search for what you want to hear (say, Mozart, "wind quintets" or "Fats Domino") and then use the Content Type (in the grey bar down the right side of the screen) to narrow your search to Music Recording.

Click on the link, plug in your earphones and away you go.

Naxos does list some albums that aren't part of our subscription, so occasionally you'll find something you can't listen to, but you'd be surprised how much music you can hear - online, anywhere in the world, through your JCU Library.
