It seems to me that standard phonodisc (lp) shelving would work just
fine. Shelves are 13 in. deep and the shelves have several slots for
adding 5 to 7 dividers per shelf that allow the discs to remain upright
when others are removed. These shelves fit on standard library shelving
uprights. Most recently we ordered some from Burroughs but other companies
probably handle also. Hope this helps.
