Organizing LPs by Alphabet
Posted on September 17 2019
Alphabetical organization tends to be the most popular method for storing and cataloging records. Well-loved and implemented by Discogs, librarians and collectors worldwide, this method tends to be the most straight-forward and easiest to implement. The hardest part may just be in committing to alphabetize by artist first name or last.
