AquaBrowser Library brings Music to Amsterdam’s ears

The latest component to the Amsterdam Public Library AquaBrowser implementation has officially gone live. 'Muziekweb' is now available to any Amsterdam Public Library member. With 300,000 CDs, over 300,000 LPs and more than 10,000 music-DVDs, 'Muziekweb' is the largest collection of music in Europe. This collection is belongs to the 'Centrale Discotheek Rotterdam' (CDR), physically located in the Rotterdam Public Library. The service is available to the entire public community; however, this is the first time that such a collection has ever been integrated right into a library catalog search through AquaBrowser Library. AquaBrowser Library allows the user to 'discover' new music using the associations, or 'refine' the results to get the exact item they are looking for.
