Last year, over 1,000 items were added to each part of the collection (recordings, scores, and books) last year: recordings, scores, and books. Compact disc additions include the latest popular music, major label classical stars, and reissues of classic performances. The Educational Resources Collections also added many music DVDs, including operas and Hollywood musicals.
Naxos Music Library has announced the addition of EMI Classics and Blue Note to the labels it streams. Currently, there are almost 800,000 tracks available already. Both of these labels will provide major contributions to the selection.
No matter what your style, there is a CD, DVD, or score for your interests. Ball State Libraries' Media Finders can help you find your next favorite...
