Bags has many supplies for LP storage (and other media) and are a good
place for quality, although I have no idea how their prices compare to
other vendors. As for the collection itself, my first question is how many
records do you have and are they mass pressed or acetate instantaneous
records? Are they commercial recordings or rare material? Do you want to
just inventory them or digitize them? There are more questions, but they
depend on the answers to these questions first.
