Music Online to triple in size (Alexander Street Press)

Alexander Street Press writes: "All of our music listening (in streaming audio) collections will nearly triple in size over the course of 2010, growing from our current total of nearly 263,000 recordings to more than 720,000 by December of this year. Online collections that will see huge increases in numbers of recordings - without a price increase - include:

* Classical Music Library will grow from roughly 64,000 to approximately 155,000 recordings
* Jazz Music Library will grow from roughly 60,000 to approximately 122,000 recordings
* American Song will grow from roughly 69,000 to approximately 114,000 recordings
* Contemporary World Music will grow from roughly 28,000 to approximately 196,000 recordings
* Subscribers to the entire Music Online Listening package (which includes the four collections above as well as Smithsonian Global Sound® for Libraries) will see their number of recordings increase by an additional 140,000 popular music recordings. New popular music content will include a wide mix of genres, from children's music, to new age, film soundtracks, hip-hop/rap, electronic, and rock with artists such as Tonya Tucker, a Flock of Seagulls, Donna Summer, Edith Piaf, Chicago, Iggy Pop, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Lou Reed, Liberace, and many more"
