optical disc library

A storage system that contains multiple optical drives that read and write the media simultaneously. Libraries may hold one disc per drive or have storage for any number of discs or cartridges that are moved to and from the drives via a robotic mechanism. Also called an "optical jukebox," such devices are made for CDs, DVDs, magneto-optic discs and WORM discs. See optical disc.
