What Is Freegal?
Freegal is a downloadable music service from the Nevins Memorial Library. All you need is your library card number. With access to the Sony Music Entertainment catalog, it offers hundreds of thousands of songs, over 100 music genres, and more than 50 record labels, all without having to download software or have any digital rights management (DRM) issues to deal with. Access to Freegal is limited to Nevins Library card holders.
How Does Freegal Music Work?
A download usage counter is located in the upper right hand corner of the Freegal Music site, which displays your weekly allotment. For instance, 1/3 means that you have used 1 of your 3 weekly downloads. Each Monday, your download usage counter is automatically reset to 0.
The site is also set up so that you can browse or search for your favorite music or artist. You can browse by keyword, genre, featured artist, newly added artist, or use the advanced search page. Freegal Music also offers an easy-to-use A to Z quick find at the bottom of the home page.
How Many Songs Can I Download?
At this time, each patron may download 3 songs per week on their library card. As noted above, the download counter will let you know when you have hit your weekly limit.
Are the Songs Really FREE?
Freegal Music and the music you download are free to you in the same sense that most of the things in the library are free to you as a patron. The service is paid for and provided to you by the Nevins Memorial Library.
Will the Songs Downloaded Work on an iPod or iPad?
Yes! The easiest thing to do is to download the files to your desktop or your music folder. Import the song into iTunes by either dragging the song into the window or importing it from the menu. Presto, the song is now added into your library. The next time you synch up, you will see that song in your music library.
