The BookReader integrates the discovery and display of compound objects such as books, manuscripts, and newspapers in LUNA. LUNA’s new BookReader allows users to search inside a book, turn its pages, and zoom into the text. Of course. And because our BookReader is a part of the amazing LUNA browser, its added features make it rise above the competition. In addition to descriptive data, BookReader objects are indexed for full text searching. See an example, or read more about the BookReader features and v6.3 release.
Designed for Pictopia printing services but developed in a generic way that may be used for other print on demand services, the eCommerce solution adds a “Buy” link to the Detail View within LUNA. This allows each and every image in a collection to easily be available for reproductions. Contact Support to learn more about implementing this feature to your LUNA collections.
Collections in Insight can be built for public, private, or shared access. Insight collections published to LUNA are fully optimized for web search engines and distribution-ready for the new LUNA Commons, thereby providing access to thousand of end users who may not otherwise know about your collections. Collections available through the LUNA Commons can also be available through your institutional license. This way, all of your LUNA collections can be centrally managed for your user community.
We are pleased to highlight how Cornell University represents both Cornell collections as well as LUNA Commons collections in one location — allowing users to quickly search and discover resources without having to jump from site to site. Visit the Cornell University LUNA Collections Portal.Read the full Luna Imaging December 2009 eNews
Images from the History of Medicine (IHM) provides access to nearly 70,000 images in the collections of the History of Medicine Division (HMD) of the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM). The collection is now available to the public in our new LUNA browser at www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/ihm/.
NASA and Internet Archive, a non-profit digital library based in San Francisco, have made available the most comprehensive compilation ever of NASA's vast collection of photographs, historic film and video. The collection is now available to the public in our new LUNA browser at www.nasaimages.org.
This is the first step in a five-year partnership that will add millions of images and thousands of hours of video and audio content.
The content covers all the diverse activities of America's space program, including imagery from the Apollo moon missions, Hubble Space Telescope views of the universe and experimental aircraft past and present.
Internet Archive is developing the NASA Images project using software donated by Luna Imaging, Inc. and with the generous support of the Kahle-Austin Foundation.
The new LUNA browser supports the creation of unique URL's to specific content. See a Slide Show of Cat's Eye Nebulas. Listen to President Richard Nixon speaking to Apollo 11 crewmembers Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin via telephone, while the two astronauts stand on the Moon's surface. Or, view an artist's animation showing a brown dwarf surrounded by a swirling disk of planet-building dust. Enjoy!
