MARC. XML Records Update - Q1 2014

Good Day Friends,

Another update to the Naxos MARC.XML is upon us!  As in previous updates the links are provided below for both the Naxos Music Library, and Naxos Music Library - Jazz.   Did you know that we added over 3,000 new albums in the first quarter of 2014!?

Our MARC .XML records are now also available as batch downloads, with the records sectioned off in month- and year-sized batches (based on when the titles were added). You can find out more here.

Continuing to improve our offering, we are now also making available a quarterly "removed" list.  This very small list of items are things that should be removed from your catalog, as they are no longer available in all territories.   We've provided a few different fields that should help you locate the items in your catalog, if you have them loaded currently.  Namely, the Album Title, Catalog ID, and URL that would be have been provided, but also the file name/path of where the album originally was located in previous batches.  

Removed Titles Lists:

Happy MARC'ing!

Naxos Music Library Introduces New Media Player

Naxos Music Library is excited to announce the  release of a brand new media player! Here she is: (drum roll please...)

Created in HTML5, this new player sidesteps limitations of the old Flash player and makes room for further growth in the future. So aside from the sleek new design, what exactly does the new player offer?
1. More mobile accessibility. HTML5 cooperates far better with mobile devices than Flash does. Is a mobile app not yet available for your tablet or phone? For most users, this new player will work through your main mobile internet connection—no app needed! Simply log in and access music on your mobile internet browser just as you would on your computer.

2. More track information. The HTML5 player displays more information for each track, allowing you to find just the one you need. This is especially helpful when streaming, say, a disc or playlist full of Vivaldi works where half the tracks are simply titled “Allegro.” Now track lists in the player will include the rest of the work title so you can quickly identify which of those Allegros is THE Allegro.

3. More flexibility in player size. Previously, the player stayed the same size no matter how you expanded the window. Now, the player design adjusts to better fit the size of the window.
The dirty details: Our new HTML5 player is supported in the following browser versions.  If you're not seeing the new player, it's likely you're running an older version of your browser.  A quick update should allow you to enjoy NML's new experience right away!
