Streaming Music? - We've got that!

Love to listen to music? If so, check out the tracks available in the Music Online databases. Students and employees can use this database to create custom playlists of albums or tracks . Users can even send their playlist to their smartphone! In addition, you can browse through the playlists created by other users. Liz Dutton, the Music Editor for Alexander Street Press, has created some amazing playlists including several with Halloween and Christmas music. What a great way to get in the holiday mood! If you have questions about accessing the database or creating a playlist, ask a librarian!

Databases Cancelled by AVL

Like all other public universities in Alabama, UNA benefits by receiving access to the databases that are included in the state-funded Alabama Virtual Library. Due to funding shortages, the Alabama Virtual Library has cancelled several databases. This means that these databases will no longer be available to our students. See below for a list of the cancelled databases. Unless otherwise indicated below, access has already been terminated for these databases.
