Handling 78RPM Records that are Donated to the Internet Archive

B.George and Fred Patterson are the leaders of this project.

78RPM records that are donated to the Internet Archive PhysicalArchive

Supplies are all on green shelves at Florida Avenue:

If the pallets are in bad shape or a size that does not fit well in our storage containers, then please use the InternetArchiveStandardPallets.

They are stored 3 levels high, 9 13" cube boxes on a level, then a cardboard separators in between. *fred-- can you please take a photo give to caitlin or sean and maybe marc can do it?**

A 13" by 13" by 13" box can store approximately 90 78rpm records. With 9 boxes on a level, 3 levels, that is 27 boxes, or 2430 78's per pallet.

Labeling the pallets: standard pallet number applies, but if there is any information about who donated this, and what the boxes on that pallet means, please write this repetatively on paper and adhere it to the pallet. *marc or sean-- how should this be done?*

For shipping them to George Blood Company for digitization: to be worked on by bgeorge

  • we bought gold 78 sleeves and pack each 78 in one of these, get from Bags Unlimited
  • we use a 11x11 u-line white clamshell box to pack 22 or so seventy eights
  • we pack 4 of these in a 13x13x13 u-line 200b box

Thorpe Collection (needs a donation item) from Batavia Public Library

Tercat Collection from Rhode Island about 77,000 78's. will go on approximately 32-40 pallets.
