Useful Resources for Music Undergraduate Presentations (at Your Fingertips!)

Music in History - Group Presentations

Are you an RCS student giving a group presentation in the next week or so? Or an RCS lecturer?  If you can log on to the internet, you can stream recordings from our Naxos or Classical Music Library subscriptions.  That might be useful if you're wanting to play examples of what you're talking about.

Come to think of it, our streamed recordings could be useful while you're preparing your presentation, too.  Want to compare recordings? Not a problem.

Visit the library website and look for the Electronic Resources page, here.  (

If you're on campus, just click the Naxos 'internal', or Classical Music Library link, and you'll get straight in. If you're using them at home, there's an external link for Naxos or use the single Classical Music Library link.  Either way, you'll need to login:-

  • For Naxos - ask at the library desk for username and password.
  • For Classical Music Library - use a process called 'Shibboleth' - find RCS from a list of institutions, click on it, then use your usual RCS login. 
Come and ask if you need more info, or use library chat from the catalogue homepage.  

We are the ever-helpful Whittaker Library, here to help our community of performing artists with their music, drama, ballet, film and technical production info requirements.
