Searching for Naxos music in the discovery service

All Naxos records may be found in the library discovery service when either the All content or Online Articles & streaming tabs have been selected. In order to most easily find the Naxos recordings, we suggest that you select Audio from the Format Section in the gray Refine by box on the left side of the results screen. Once you've found the recording that you wish to listen to, click on the "Listen to recording at Naxos Music Library" icon.

To access Naxos directly, you may search for "Naxos Music Library" in the discovery service, preferably with the Library Catalog tab selected. This will allow you search for specific recordings within the site itself, and avoid having lots of results from other sites show up in your results.

 

Limitations of Naxos

Naxos does have a few minor limitations. For instance, Mac Safari is not able to play Naxos recordings. If you typically use this browser, you will need to download another, such as GoogleChrome or FireFox.

Only 3 people are allowed to use Naxos at a time. Because of this, make sure you log out at the top when you are finished using it so other students don't have to wait for your session to time out.

Don't Forget!

Please, don't forget to sign-out of Naxos when you're finished using it. We have only 3 simultaneous licenses for this site, and logging out promptly increases the chances for other people to use it.
