  1. CARNEGIE LIBRARY SEEKS SUBMISSIONS FOR LOCAL MUSIC PROJECT

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is seeking submissions for a new online archive of local music called Stacks. (Full disclosure: I am a librarian at the Carnegie Library). Patrons with a library card will be able to stream and download the music of Western Pennsylvania artists. Music will be selected by a jury of members of the Pittsburgh music community and Carnegie Library staff. Artists selected will receive a compensation of $200. The first round of submissions will be accepted through October 8. For more information, please take a look at the Stacks website and article in the Post-Gazette.

Best,

David Michael King, Coordinator   412-498-6360
