Exporting a catalogue of my library to view online?
I've a large collection of music, in folders per composer for the classical and by artist for the rest.
I'd like to be able look up when away from home. Not to play it, just to check that I have something in my collection.
Is there an easy way to see my catalogue online?

This would work on Linux, on Windows, you might need to find an alternative to wget.
Open the console, navigate to your music directory and launch a python http server with:
python -m http.server 8123(You need to have python installed, obviously)
Warning: this is not secure, any one on your local network can access this server, so be sure to close it afterwards.
When that is running, in a new Terminal window download the hosted page, but only the html files with:
wget -r --accept "*.html" "http://localhost:8123/"
This gives you your music folder structure as html files. You could copy the folder to your phone, laptop, or whatever and browse your collection, by opening the index.html in a webbrowser. Alternatively, you could host it on a webserver, if you have one.
This is just what I spontaneously came up with, if I needed a solution in a pinch. But I am sure there are better ways.
