Media type icons

Media type icons help users identify the right medium right away.

Icons help users identify the right medium.

Based on some observations, users jotted down signatures of the wrong types of media. This implies there should be more emphasis on the medium type. Adding an icon next to a medium’s title would help users immediately identify the correct item they wish to obtain.

Another tool is the availability indicator, a red or green circle that helps users identify the availability of a medium.
