Marigold now offers music streaming through Freegal Music eResource

News Date: 
10 July 2018

Marigold is excited to announce that 5 hours/day of streaming on Freegal Music will be available for all of our member library patrons beginning August 1.
 
Streaming music from Freegal is ad-free. The 5 hours/day of streaming is in addition to the 5 songs/week download limit.
 
To stream:
 
Nothing has changed with the download functionality, except that the sample clips are now gone.  Streaming is, after all, a license to sample!

  1. When you put your cursor over an album, you will see a “stream now” button come up. If you press that button on an album, the whole album will play in order. 
  2. You can use “Freegal Playlists”.  This is a list of pre-selected songs in a genre that you are sure to enjoy.
  3. To create a playlist:
    • Click on “My Playlists” under “Streaming” on the left side of the page.
    • Click on “Create and Store Playlists”.
    • At the top center of the page, click on the “+” symbol next to “Saved Playlists”.
    • Name your playlist (ex. “The Boss”) and describe it (ex. “Bruce”).
    • In that box, click on “Create New Playlist” and your playlist is ready to add music.
    • Click on the “Home” page and start looking for music to add.
    • To add an album, move your cursor over an album cover and a =+ will appear.  Click on that, and then add to your playlist of choice.
    • To add an individual song, click on the image until you see a play arrow and =+ sign. Pressing the =+ will allow you to add the song to your chosen playlist.

 
Streaming, just like downloading, can be done on a PC or through the Freegal app.
