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)
