You will also find the search and display very different.  Here is a tip sheet to help you with these changes:
The Encyclopedia of Popular Music, 4th ed. is no longer included in Oxford Music Online. It can be searched separately using the following link:

Search for music materials in the Library Catalogues

Looking for a specific musical work?  This can be surprisingly difficult in the Library Catalogue.  Tip:  in the Keyword Search box, enter <composer name> and <title word(s)> ... For example:  <mozart and nozze> (Yes, you need the word and in there!) 

You may get better results by using Advanced Search.
