Default Collections in LUNA

Are you getting strange results when searching in LUNA?

The VRC recently made some LUNA collections public (such as the Renaissance Society Archive). By default, LUNA searches these public collections first.

To change the default to search or browse all collections, always access LUNA from the VRC website or the link below:

https://luna.lib.uchicago.edu/luna/servlet/s/bdc26x

You can also change your user settings (including default collections) by following the directions here.

Please contact us with any questions!

Send Image Updates to VRC Staff

VRC staff members know that our faculty and students have subject expertise and can provide excellent additions to our image data. We want your contributions, and it’s easy to notify us! You can automatically generate a link to individual images or entire search results in LUNA. This function may be used to share images with VRC staff when corrections or updates are needed. Find the image or images you would like to share with VRC staff, click on the “Share This” tab, and copy the link into an email.

Please direct all image updates to visualresources@uchicago.edu.
