Help me organize hundreds -- if not thousands -- of vinyl and CD albums dating back to the 1970's.

My college radio station has a large room full of vinyl and CD's dating back to the 1970's (maybe earlier). The problem is that, for the most part, they are just thrown into these large bins that are stacked more or less from floor to ceiling.
Our Music Director wants to find a way to organize these albums--while throwing out anything that really seems worthless--preferably by artist, alphabetically.
Considering that we will have around three people working at a time, what is the best way of going about this?
I know this seems quite open-ended (and perhaps somewhat obvious), but I just want to make sure I'm not overlooking any more efficient, alternative options, as right now, all I've come up with is painstakingly going through each box and pulling out albums...
If you've worked at a radio, how did the station keep their massive collection organized?
