II. What is Naxos Music Library (NML)?
Naxos Music Library is the World’s largest Classical music listening service designed for students, instructors and patrons of public and academic libraries, as well as players and executives of orchestras. Our collection of over 140,000 tracks of music is continually growing, not only from our own label but from other leading independent labels. Our collection is benchmarked against the development suggestions outlined in the Music Library Association’s A Basic Music Library. NML has simple and advanced searching, common (non-proprietary) software requirements, and extensive background information such as complete liner notes.

III. Accessing NML

a) How do I access NML?

Before getting started, coordinate with your Naxos representative to get the following information:

We offer mechanisms that allow you to control who should be given access to NML for institutional subscriptions.  Below are the options. You may also check the “Service version” section of your service agreement for the option your institution has selected.

IP Authentication

If you selected “IP Authentication”, we will give you a unique URL which you can access directly or from links on your library/institution webpage. The URL will be in the format of http://xxx.NaxosMusicLibrary.com. NML will allow access only to those IP addresses provided by your organization.

Referring URL

If you selected “Referring URL”, you will receive a unique URL in the format of http://xxx.NaxosMusicLibrary.com. You will have customized URLs (Referral URLs) that will link to your unique URL. This means that NML will check the URL of incoming browser requests, and grant access only if the incoming URL matches one of those listed in your “My Account” page in the NML website.  The Referral URL is entered into the appropriate field in the “My Account” page for the institution as shown in Figure 3.1 below.

Both

If you chose “Both”, this means that an institution may want to authenticate by IP addresses for computers within the institution’s area, and authenticate with Referral URL for computers accessing to them remotely. In Figure 3.1 above, the Authorize button indicates what sort of authentication an institution has. You can see that there are three options: “IP authorized,” “Refer URL” and “Both.” This subscription is set for “Both.”

Password authentication

If you chose “password authentication”, you will only need the login/password data given to you to log-on to NML.

Please note that your URL, login and password are included in the email confirmation that you received from your Naxos representative which contains details about the service.
