Blu-Ray Format

Blu-Ray discs – new to the Media Collection at Main
Handle with care! They are very fragile! And very difficult to repair!
Can only be played on a blu-ray player, NOT a DVD player
Currently, we have no blu-ray player in Main; there is a player in Axinn
Currently there is no way for staff or students to view in-library
Faculty may borrow for viewing outside the library
Shelve blu-ray discs as usual with the regular DVDs and VHS tapes in the Media Collection
Each disc has a message in its record identifying it as a blu-ray disc
Cases are slightly shorter than regular DVD cases, and colored blue
