from Alexander Street Press
We are excited to announce that the Alexander Street Music Online cross search platform received a wonderful review in the November 1, 2009 issue of Booklist, where they referred to us as "the LexisNexis of Music"!
A few highlights of the review include:
- "The statistics...are impressive - 14,105 CDs and albums; 298 videos totaling 468 hours of dance and opera; more than 550,000 pages of full-text reference; 15,222 scores."
- "New material is continually being added in all categories..."
- "Classical Scores Library is amazing, the images load quickly and thumbnail images permit scrolling through multiple pages. There are also options for printing less than the entire score..."
- "Dance in Video and Opera in Video are also fascinating"...
- "Music Online is the LexisNexis of music, and it may make the use of many traditional library resources unnecessary..."
