Here at UCSC we still have a huge collection of phonodiscs (10,000+) which
are used by the music faculty and their students. Over 583 were used last
fiscal year. We maintain two listening rooms with players and have four
players left in reserve for repair and replacement use. Although many
discs have been replaced by CDs many performances have yet to be transfered
to CD from phone disc and these are still needed for instructional purposes.
