Q. What is this Naxos Music Library, and how do I use it?

Answer

Naxos Music Library is an online streaming service that BGSU students, faculty, and staff can use to listen to music on their computers or portable devices on and off campus.  It includes:

...all of the Naxos, Marco Polo, Dacapo, BIS, Chandos, CPO, Hänssler, and Hungaroton catalogues, as well as recordings from several other labels. Altogether, the holdings currently consist of almost a million tracks from over 50,000 CDs, with new releases added each month. Users may stream a wide variety of classical, jazz, new age, and world music from on or off campus. You may search the collection or browse by title, genre, or broader categories. The site also includes a reference area with sections such as opera synopses, opera libretti, and a pronunciation guide. 

Find it online at: http://maurice.bgsu.edu/record=e1000124 .  If, while you're listening, you find things you want to hear on the go, create an account, compile a playlist, and then download the relevant iPhone or Android app to listen to your playlist.
