Cayvan Recorded Media Center

About Cayvan

The Cayvan Recorded Media Center is a multipurpose facility located on the 2nd floor of Hekman Library which oversees the library audio and visual media collections (movies, music, audiobooks, etc.) including related course reserves.

Hekman has recently added two online music "libraries," which are helpful for listening to assigned music or just listening for enjoyment! They are Naxos Music Library (NML) and Naxos Jazz.  Both of these resources offer users the ability to listen to thousands of musical recordings one track at a time. NML releases around 200 new CD recordings per year. Playlists can be created by students and professors for private use or for in-class discussion and analysis.

Naxos also offers composer biographies, artist information, custom institutional playlists, free mobile apps, and work analyses of major works.

CAUTION: Naxos is a stream-only resource. Any downloading or burning from NML is prohibited and violates both copyright law and the Terms of Use agreement.

NOTE: There is a limit of 15 simultaneous users for both NML and Naxos Jazz. Questions? Ask at Cayvan or see music librarian Kathy DeMey for more information.
