The world’s biggest record collection is to be turned into a vinyl library, according to a report on BBC News.

Brazilian collector Zero Freitas has amassed over 5 million records, which he employs a team of college interns to catalogue.

Speaking to the BBC, Freitas – who owns a private bus line in the São Paulo suburbs – outlines his plans to create a searchable collection for public use.


“We hope people will be able to select records through our collection and listen to the music,” says Freitas. “The relationship people have with certain songs is subjective and personal. I want to share this with people and make it possible for them to recall their memories.”
