What is MUSICat?
An open source platform for creating local music collections
- Created by Rabble with Public Libraries across North America
What does MUSICat do?
Shares streams, downloads, and information about local artists
Empowers libraries to license music directly from local artists
- Gives librarians, curators, and musicians tools to build a collection together
why does my library need MUSICat?
MUSICat is a community engagement machine. When our partner libraries launch their sites, they’re swamped by musicians, organizations, collectives, and businesses who want to get involved.
- MUSICat helps foster sustainable artistic communities. When your library builds a MUSICat collection, you create a new revenue source for musicians, and help grow existing revenue streams (think concert attendance, music and merchandise sales) by expanding and strengthening local fan bases.
