# What's the difference between albums in my library and albums outside of my library? --- ## Benefits of adding albums to your Roon library Adding albums from TIDAL or Qobuz to Roon allow you to take full control of the powerful tools available in Roon. Once an album is added in Roon you can: - Add the album or tracks from the album to [tags](https://kb.roonlabs.com/Tags) - [Favorite](https://kb.roonlabs.com/Favorites) the album and its tracks - Select the album and tracks with [Focus](https://kb.roonlabs.com/FAQ:_How_do_I_create_a_smart_playlist%3F_How_do_I_save_a_Focus%3F) - Make edits to the album and tracks - And more! Adding streaming media to your Roon library gives you the tools to modify the content as you see fit, giving you the best experience for managing both your local and streaming libraries. ## Adding an album to your Roon library When you navigate to an album that you don't have in your library, you can select _Add To Library_, which will create a copy of that album in your Roon library. <img src='http://roon-ikb.s3.amazonaws.com/83c504e2-054e-4fcb-8053-c27a42fb14fc.png'/> You'll see the page update to reflect newly available options once it's been added to your library. <img src='http://roon-ikb.s3.amazonaws.com/935f57f8-edf2-4d5b-9811-91fa2fdead17.png'/> You can also add specific tracks instead of the entire album by Right-Clicking the desired tracks, selecting the 3-Dots option button, and choosing *Add To Library*. <img src='http://roon-ikb.s3.amazonaws.com/0919fb79-02dd-4587-8370-d2c68fa33f21.png'/> ## Why can I still see a version of this album that's not in my library? Once an album is added to your library you can make various edits and changes to the album. You may also only have a portion of the tracks from an album in your library rather than the full tracklist. For these reasons, we think it is important that you can still navigate to the original, unedited version of the album directly from the streaming service. By doing this you can add any missing tracks and see the album as it's presented by the original service without any user made modifications.
