I love the new iMacs, but they aren't able to play DVDs. Some are being
used as catalog search computers (for example) on the third floor, when
they would be much more well suited for multimedia applications like
playing movies. Please enable the new iMacs to play DVDs and put at
least one as a DVD station in media reserves, please!

DVD viewing is available in the Media and Reserve Services on the 3rd floor of Cabell Library. This Spring, our Group Viewing Room was updated with surround sound, multi-region DVD and video equipment, and a 36" high-resolution monitor. The MRS has DVD stations with 27 inch high-resolution monitors and high fidelity stereo headphones. Several of the DVD players are multi-region. If you want to use interactive special features on your DVD, we have eMACs and PC's with DVD drives (region 1 only). Come by with a friend to view your personal DVD or borrow one of growing DVD collection.
