The Naxos Music Library is the world´s largest online classical music library, with online streaming access to more than 96,000 CDs and almost 1.4 million tracks.  Hundreds of new CDs are added each month not only in classical, but jazz, world, and popular music as well.  The OCC Libraries also provide access to the Naxos Music Library Jazz database, with over 8,600 albums including the complete catalogs of prestigious jazz labels such as Blue Note Records, Fantasy Records, Warner Jazz, EMI, and more.
