Historical Note

The University of Nevada, Reno Libraries collected over time vinyl records for use by faculty, staff, and students. These records eventually became obsolete and were stored first in Getchell Library's lower levels and finally on the first floor of the Knowledge Center. In 2016, the Digital Initiatives Librarian began a project that sought to digitize as many of the vinyl records as possible. From those, a number of University related vinyl records were discovered, digitized, and the original records transferred to University Archives.
