There are four ways to find the music you are looking for in Naxos Music Library:
In the navigation tabs across the top of the page, you will see options for “Composers”, “Artists”, “Genres”, and “Labels.” When you click on one of these options, you will then see alphabetical listings of every item that qualifies for that option. For example, when you select “Composers”, every composer listed in NML will be listed in alphabetical order. Once you find the composer, artist, genre, or record label you need, clicking on it will then list every CD available in NML that falls under that selection. Clicking on the "Genres" tab will produce a drop-down menu from which you can choose the genre or sub-genre of your choice.
2. Keyword Search
The Keyword Search box is located at the top of every page. Type a word or phrase in the box and click “Search.” This is a good way to search for a specific album or repertoire title.
3. Advanced Search
Click the “Advanced Search” tab in the navigation tab bar at the top of any page. You can use as few or as many fields as you like on this page. If you are not sure how to spell a composer or artist name, or are unsure what to put into any of the fields, just click the magnifying glass next to the box for complete alphabetical listings. Click the item you want, and it will fill in the field for you. Also, you can begin typing into a field, and after a few letters you will see a dropdown list of potential selections appear. After you have entered the desired criteria, click “Search.”
4. Catalogue Search
If you happen to know the catalogue number of the item you need, just enter it either into the Keyword Search box or under the “Catalogue Search” tab on the Advanced Search page.
The results of a Keyword Search, Advanced search, Genre browse, or Label browse will be a listing of individual albums, rather than individual tracks from those albums. Included with each album title is the name of the composer(s), featured artists, and the catalogue number. To view the contents and listen to recordings from a specific album, simply click on the title in the results list.
If you browse by either Composer or Artist, after selecting a name from the alphabetical list, you can view lists of recordings by either the album or work title. For well-known composers and artists, a brief biographical entry is included in addition to the recording lists.
