MFT Physical Music Archive

August 01, 2013

It all started with a box of CDs, cassettes and 45s being mailed to MFT earlier this year. Now, after moving into the new SmallBox office (which has tons of awesome shelf space), we're putting together a comprehensive archive of Indiana releases in physical form.

Factory Week has allowed MFT to start organizing and filing all the great Indiana-related CDs, LPs, 45s and cassettes that have come into our care over the last decade or so. Eventually, we'd like to digitize the physical archive so anyone could browse and explore the shelves from their computer, but for now we're focused on cataloging and sorting the albums and getting them on the shelves.

We even got some great help from one of Jeb's daughters, who is helping to enter the data into a spreadsheet so we can keep track of all the albums, when they were released, where they're at on the shelves and who donated them to the archive!

Check out some photos of the progress:
