You can create centralized playlists with one single login, bringing in materials from Alexander Street databases or material anywhere on the Web.  The robust indexing allows users to browse and search by genre, historical event, album, track, score, people, classical work, cultural group, ensemble, instrument, label, place, recording date, reference work, role, subject, time period, venue, and video.
For example, you can browse by instrument “banjo” and immediately access a bluegrass recording by Ralph Stanley, a folk recording by Pete Seeger, multiple images of banjos, articles on the banjo from various reference sources, and a twentieth-century score by David Del Tredici featuring the banjo.
If you are looking for scores, recordings, and videos of particular classical works, you can use the Classical Works browse, which will provide all relevant results for a particular composition.
