Is nkoda Right For Us?

Calling all treble makers! Now until Sunday, Dec. 31, 2023, we need you to test out a new music database and let us know what you think.

nkoda is a database of sheet music with thousands of resources that aid in finding, playing and annotating music by pulling materials from all around the world and straight to your phone, tablet or computer.

Included is direct and unlimited access to publishing catalogs such as Barenreiter, Boosey & Hawkes, Chester, Faber Music, Novello and Ricordi. Special features include mark-up tools, sharing of scores and playlists, uploading PDF formatted files, storing and accessing offline and a hands-free page-turner.

We need your help.

To determine if nkoda is a resource the library should add, we need you to try it out and then complete our brief survey to let us know what you think. Your feedback will help us determine if this is the right resource for the community.
