    Abstract: This article surveys the activities of the internationally acclaimed, budget classical recording label Naxos, from its founding in 1987 to the end of 2010.  Naxos’s dedication to developing a comprehensive catalog and retailing at low prices has brought the company great success not only as a record label, but also as a publisher, distributor, and an electronic content vendor.  However, Naxos caters primarily to classical music fans, not to higher education needs.  As such, academic libraries and its patrons have been and will likely remain secondary clientele in Naxos’s overall commercial interests.
