Database of Recorded American Music, also known as DRAM, is a small collection of CD-quality streaming audio and liner notes from contemporary American composers. Genres covered are classical, folk, opera, native American, jazz, early rock, and musicals. Albums are primarily from the CD catalog of New World Records, which contains the CRI label.
Members of the SU community can search the DRAM catalog and listen to albums or tracks using SU Libraries' subscription.
Playlists are not currently available with this database. Instead, collect permalinks to post in course websites.

Permalinks in DRAM are available only at the album level. These permalinks can be bookmarked for use later, or they can be copied and pasted into course websites or other documents.
DRAM permalinks will always need to be adjusted before posting the URL on course websites. Add the prefix http://libezproxy.syr.edu/login?URL= before the permalink to ensure off-campus access.
