Librarians across the country have caught wind of Iowa City’s Project. Nashville Public Libraries are planning to use it as a foundation for something that goes a bit further. Librarian Jared Brennan says the Nashville system plans to curate a history of the city’s music that goes beyond country to include hip-hop, alt-rock and other genres … and make it available beyond city limits.
"We were originally going to make it just available for library card holders," said Nashville Public Librarian Jared Brennan. "We're still curating a Nashville music culture and as a permanent online streamable and downloadable archive... but also making it available for the world-at-large."
