English abstract

Discusses some of the more recent members of the optical media family, some of which have already entered the marketplace or will do so in the very near future. Summarizes the uses of, and prospects for, multimedia optical disc applications in libraries and other information services, such as museums. Focuses on: (1) the present state of optical memory systems and their capabilities for multimedia; (2) applications in, and relevant ongoing developments for, library and information services; and (3) the current position of the information community concerning the new technology. Overviews applications in libraries, picture archives, museums, and galleries, and research institutions. Considers problems and issues for libraries and museums. Offers suggestions for further research.
