How to use the Hal Leonard MyLibrary

MyLibrary is a place that stores supplemental content for HalLeonard publications. It’s a quick and easy way to access audio, video and/or other files that go along with physical books and products. MyLibrary is cloud­based so you can access the files from any computer in any location.

How to Access Content included in your Book/Audio

Page 1 of the book you’ve purchased contains a 16­digit code. Enter

the code in the box above that says “Enter Access Code”. Access

codes are unique to each printed copy of a book. Content can be

accessed whenever you want, and multiple times. Only the unique

code is needed; no other registration is required. MyLibrary is

compatible with PC, Mac and mobile devices.

When you’ve successfully submitted your access code, the content

page for that book will appear. You’ll know you’ve reached the right

page because the cover image and title will match your book.

Sections of content will be listed to the right. Simply click or tap the

section titles to show the content underneath them; you’ll see the files

that match the content listed in your book’s Table of Contents.

Play, View, & Download

• Play links will open up an audio or video player window through

which you can interact with the content. For audio playback, if

your computer has Flash installed, our new Playback+ player

will be displayed allowing you to adjust the speed, pitch,

balance and set loop points per your preference. Playback+

works best with the following browsers: Chrome, Safari, and IE

(version 10 and above). • View links will open up a PDF document in another tab or browser

window, allowing you to read while accessing other content on

the site. • Download links will start the download process for the file, allowing

you to access them locally. iOS device users will need to sync

using a desktop computer or an iCloud account; or, use a third-
party app to facilitate a download. See the FAQ below.

• If your item has a Download All button, you can download a zipfile

of all content for one book at a time.

Creating Your Own Library

If you own multiple Hal Leonard publications, you have the option to

create your own library and combine files from all titles. It’s a

convenient way to keep track of all your content in once place. You

can sort by song, artist, book title and more. Also, if you plan to

retrieve content often you only need to enter codes once, then they’re

saved for future access. To set up your own library, just click on the

Create Library link.


Q: I own lots of Hal Leonard publications with CDs. Can I now access

the media online?

Sorry, but we have no way of supplying codes for previously

purchased publications. If your book was purchased before 2014

and/or does not have a MyLibrary code printed in or on the product,

the media is not setup for online access.

Q: I’m trying to enter my access code but I’m not seeing the content

page. What’s wrong?

Check the following to make sure that the access code is being

entered properly: • Make sure you’ve entered the access code correctly

• All access codes are 16 characters long. Make sure you are

including all of them in the access code field

• You can enter your access code with dashes (as they appear in

your book) or spaces, but other extra characters won’t work

Q: I already have an account on Can I use this on

MyLibrary, even though I don’t have a username?

Yes! If you are already a user, your email is your

username, and your password stays the same.

Q: Sometimes when I try to click Play or Download on the item

pages, I get sent back to the main page of the site. Why is this?

If you have been inactive for 30 minutes, our system will close your

session to protect your content. Simply reenter your access code and

the item page will reappear.

Q: On my iPad and iPhone, the Download links just open another

browser tab and play the track. How come this doesn’t really


The Safari iOS browser will not allow you to download audio files

directly in iTunes or other apps. There are several ways to work

around this: • You can download normally on your desktop computer, saving the

files to iTunes. Then, you can sync your iOS device directly to

your computer, or sync your iTunes content using an iCloud

account. • There are many third­party apps which allow you to download files

from websites into the app’s own file manager for easy retrieval

and playback.
