The [Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh] is working with the company Rabble, which has offices in Pittsburgh’s Allentown neighborhood at Work Hard Pittsburgh and in Madison, Wis., to launch an iteration of Rabble’s platform called MUSICat, said Toby Greenwalt, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s director of digital strategy and technology integration.
