Library offers musical downloads

“A little more than a year ago, the Iowa City Public Library launched an ambitious project: collecting music from a wide variety of local bands and make the songs available online, free to download for library users. “We at the library are constantly watching formats … and people want a downloadable product,” said Jason Paulios, a senior librarian in adult services at the library. Paulios took over the position of senior librarian from John Hiett last year. Hiett started the program, called the Local Music Project, in June 2012 with the goal of offering local music to library patrons in a digital, downloadable setting.” (via The Daily Iowan)

More than 13,000 music files have been downloaded since the library began offering its Freegal Music service in late June. “We have been blown away by the response,” said Tony Tallent, the library’s director of literacy and learning. “It has just been incredible. We knew that it was something the public would go for, and they sure have.”
