WHAT IS MUSICat?

MUSICat is an open source platform for creating local music collections. Rabble develops MUSICat in partnership with Public Libraries across North America. Together, we're building Digital Public Spaces that empower libraries and communities to share creative work online.

MUSICat is a new way to share local content online, with no-nonsense digital lending. It's fun and easy to use, with no holds, returns, or borrowing limits. Your library can collect and publish as much music as you want, whenever you want, under license terms you control.

WHAT DOES MUSICat DO?

MUSICat empowers your library to create local collections on your own terms. Using the platform, libraries license music directly from local artists.

MUSICat sites share streams, downloads, and information about local artists. MUSICat's extensive administrative functionality gives librarians, curators, and musicians tools to build a collection together.

WHY DOES MY LIBRARY NEED MUSICat?

MUSICat is a community engagement machine. When libraries launch their sites, they’re swamped by musicians, organizations, collectives, and businesses who want to get involved. MUSICat libraries are digital leaders and local music authorities. 

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.
