EMI Music Publishing, a leading music publisher, introduced the first "Search-to-Quote" online service in the music publishing industry. The site, www.emimusicpub.com, provides professional music users with a broad range of tools that afford greater control, speed, capability and depth of information when searching for and licensing songs.

The new site provides direct access to more than 500,000 of EMI's catalog, with a greater variety of search criteria tailored to the precise needs of the music user.

"This is about our commitment to providing tools and resources for our clients that are both powerful and flexible," said John Melillo, VP of emi musicResources, EMI Music Publishing. "This release of our site has dramatically more content, and for the first time, allows users to manage as many attributes of their projects as they like, from creative to business, all on the site."

Key functions include: A Search and License feature allows users to search through all of the songs in EMI's online catalogs and request a licensing quote on the spot. These advanced searches produce highly detailed results, featuring sound clips, lyrics, label copy, hit year and discography. Results can be further tailored with a "fuzzy" search, which compensates for spelling errors and typos, along with a Thesaurus function that automatically broadens the scope of a search to include related words, ideas and emotions.

Other Search and License features include:

  • Song Search, where music users can search the entire EMI song database or limit their search to top songs only. Searches can be performed by song title, artist, writer, hit year, album, record label, film and show.

  • Lyric Search, where users can search for ideas and emotions using key words or phrases.

  • License Request Forms that allow users to initiate the licensing process and retrieve a quote online. Once the process is in motion, users can log on to track the progress of each request.

  • The Sync TankSM affords industry professionals a secure, private, password-protected work area where they can organize and track the progress of single or multiple projects, even those involving non-EMI songs. With the private, password-protected Sync TankSM, clients can maintain projects in separate folders, track ongoing work, add new projects, and keep track of important details such as visual descriptions, team members, music-use information and licensing status. Only the authorized user, or someone of their choosing, can view and work within designated project folders. Users may also share their work and seek collaboration from colleagues around the world or down the hallway.

  • News & Charts provides important information about the people, places, songs and major events that affect the music publishing industry.
