The American Discography Project: Edison Disc Recording Access Initiative

The completion of discographic entries for the complete output of Edison Diamond Discs, Thomas Edison’s recording company, in the Discography of American Historical Recordings. The project would make information publicly searchable for about 14,000 discs recorded and released from 1912 to 1929 and also would digitize 9,000 selections for public streaming access through the National Jukebox.

The American Discography Project-Edison Disc Recording Access Initiative is a project to add discographic data on all 14,000 Edison disc recordings to UC Santa Barbara's Discography of American Historical Recordings (DAHR) as well as digitize 9,000 issued sides from major repositories holding Edison discs. The project will be the first to digitize the complete corpus of an American record company for online access.
