  • Who are you? Larissa Beringer, Art, Design + Media Librarian

    What are some of the items that you find fascinating? At the moment I am excited about a resurgence of interest in print media in art school and art publishing. In the omnipresence of digital media, print media has a special position. Print magazines in art and design are totally relevant and keep diversifying. In some of the best cases the magazine format is constantly evolving and is a vehicle for distributing works of art, limited editions, music, and collective projects.

  • And without further ado, we now have Blu-ray! There is now a Blu-ray player set up on one of the library video viewing stations. Blu-ray discs look like DVDs but have the capacity to hold HD video. To get all the rich detail of HD the discs need to be played on a Blu-ray player or PlayStation 3 game console hooked up to an HDTV. DVDs can be played in a Blu-ray player but Blu-ray discs will only play in a Blu-ray player.
