Value for money
Naxos AudioBooks, just like Naxos Music, produces first-class performances and recorded sound at an affordable price. The online Spoken Word Library offers the same outstanding value-for-money proposition.
Online content saves time and money
With the Naxos Spoken Word Library, no lost or damaged CDs need ever to be replaced. Multiple copies are no longer required.
On-site and remote access
Students, teaching staff and other users can log on and listen in the library, in the lecture room, in the office or at home.
Vast range of content
Literature and poetry ranges from medieval times to the twentieth century, and many newly written texts supplement an ever-expanding range of non-fiction. As well as individuals, teachers and students may benefit from this variety, and from the skilfully abridged versions of classic texts.
Texts on screen
Many texts are available to follow on screen, providing a comprehensive presentation of the literature and an excellent language-learning facility. These texts can also be printed out.
Multiple, simultaneous access
Multiple users can simultaneously listen to the same content at the same time. The online Naxos Spoken Word Library is available around the clock.
Naxos has valid licenses from the publishers of in-copyright titles, allowing these titles to be streamed.
Flexible fee structure
The fee structure for educational institutions and libraries is based on the number of simultaneous users (individuals or workstations), on and off campus/site.
There is an affordable yearly subscription plan for independent individuals.
