Recording: Public Libraries: Your New Source for Local Music, Mar 13, 2019

In Austin, Edmonton, and beyond libraries are changing how their communities share, discover, and listen to music online. These trusted public institutions are shaping themselves into unlikely sites for innovation in the music industry. In close coordination with their local communities, libraries across North America are creating digital public spaces where they collect, curate, license, and publish local music collections for streaming and downloading. These libraries are pushing back against the inequality that continues to shape the music industry as a whole by building diverse music collections and experiences for the public good. Learn about the digital spaces that manifest public library ideals online for the benefit of creatives and their listening communities.
