Free Music!

January 4, 2012 at 9:58 am 5 comments

ImageThe library is now offering Freegal–the name is a contraction of “free” and “legal”–a downloadable music service.  Instead of borrowing songs, like you do with downloadable ebooks and audiobooks, you download songs in MP3 format and they are yours to keep.

Each library patron may download up to 3 songs per week.  Available songs are those included in the Sony Music catalog–including all Sony’s subsidiary music labels.

To get started, go to https://acpl.freegalmusic.com/users/sdlogin and type in your library card number and pin.  You may search by artist or browse by artist or genre.  For more information, go to http://www.acpl.info/events/freegal.pdf.

Enjoy!

    It took me about 3.5 seconds to find three songs that I wanted. I love this. Thank you.

    @Caleb, here is what the folks at Freegal say:
    From Freegal:
    >>We highly recommend that when downloading a song, you select the option to save the file to a specific location on your computer. However, if you didn’t specify a location or you opted to open the file without saving it, there are a couple things you can try to locate where the song was saved.
    If you are using iTunes…
    Open iTunes
    Locate the song in your music
    Right-click on the song title
    Select “Get Info”
    Select the “Summary” tab (by default it’s the tab that’s open in the “Get Info” dialog box
    Toward the bottom of the dialog box, there is a “Where” section which tells you the folder path where the song is located
    You may find through Windows Media Player or iTunes that the song file is located in a Temporary Internet File. You can go to “My Computer” from the Start menu on your computer and double-click through each of the folders listed in the “Location:” or “Where” box (depending on which media player you are using). Typically you’d start with your C: drive (usually called the Local Hard Disk), then click through “Documents and Settings” then the next folder and so on and so forth, to get to the song MP3 file. Once you get to the file, you can then drag it (or copy and paste it) to another location (your desktop for example). If it’s left in the temporary folder there’s potential for it to be deleted by your computer system automatically.<<
    Please let us know if you need additional help.
