New music database

DRAM (Database of Recorded American Music), a streaming audio database, has been licensed by the University Libraries and added to the alphabetical list of databases.

DRAM streams audio from over two dozen independent record labels that reflect the diversity of 20th- and 21st-century American classical music. The collection includes all recordings from the labels New World Records and Composers Recordings, Inc. (CRI) as well as other recordings of aesthetic and historical value largely ignored by the commercial marketplace. Liner notes and cover art are included. DRAM is a not-for-profit, online music database dedicated to preserving and disseminating important music recordings that may be difficult or impossible to obtain by other means.
