Announcing the Classical Music Library

This academic year, the CIM library will be introducing several new digital streaming services. Today, we are happy to announce a new subscription to the Classical Music Library. It joins other digital streaming services such as the Naxos Music Library & Naxos Fantasy Jazz. A product of Alexander Street Press, the Classical Music Library provides online access to an extensive body of music recordings. This collection features labels such as EMI, Sanctuary Classics, Hyperion, CBC, and others. The Classical Music Library was developed to serve as a comprehensive resource for libraries. We hope you will take advantage of this new service. This resource may be accessed from the CIM Library webpages under the link Find Streaming Audio.

Highlights of ClassicalMusic.com

  • Create your own free account within the Classical Music Library. This enables you to develop your own playlists.
  • The Classical Music Library has developed themed playlists. You will find playlists that coordinate with the Norton Anthology of Western Music and other anthologies, including Wright, Stolba, and Kerman. Students can now prepare for listening exams from the comfort of their dorm room.
  • Faculty members may develop their course playlists and make them available to all students. Please contact Bonnie Houser if you would like to provide this service to your students.
  • The option to download recordings for a fee to your personal computer or mp3 player. This is a service of Alexander Street Press (similar to iTunes).

These resources are accessible via any campus-networked computer. CIM & Case sudents and faculty members may access these services off-campus using Case’s VPN Client.
