Music & Media Collections: Naxos

Gaining access to the shared faculty account

  • Only faculty can create course-related playlists in Naxos Music Library (classical) or Naxos Music Library Jazz.
  • A special administrative password is required.  Please contact for the password.
  • All faculty share the same administrative password.  Please be very careful to add, change, or delete only your playlists and folders!
  • Do not give the password out to students.   Note that the password will change every school year.
  • Folders must be labeled by the course name, course number, and faculty name (i.e., World Music 101/Smith).
  • Remember to  Log-Out  when you are finished.

IMPORTANT!  Since all faculty are sharing the same administrative password, all faculty also have access to every folder and playlist.  PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL TO SELECT ONLY YOUR OWN FOLDERS AND PLAYLISTS, so you do not inadvertently edit or delete someone else's folder or playlist.
