Visual Resources: For Students

Located in the Ford Campus Library, Visual Resources manages the content of digital image databases for teaching and research purposes using LUNA software.

LUNA Tutorial

Students are welcome to search LUNA for research purposes and class study.  Use Blackboard credentials to login. 

Print Friendly Icon in LUNA

Students cannot download images from LUNA, but they can print them in a variety of sizes.  This is great for making flash cards.

Luna Walk-In Help

Every Thursday during the academic school year, LUNA Tips and Tricks takes place between 12:00 and 1:00 PM.  Come to Visual Resources in the Ford Campus Library.

How to Cite Images in a Research Paper

While each professor may have a different preference for what information is needed in a citation, feel free to use this example as a guide.

Figure 1.  El Anatsui, Delta, 2010.  Aluminum bottle tops, copper wire, 464.8 x 342.9 cm., private collection.                            

Find the Book with the Image

One very handy feature in the LUNA CCS Images for Teaching collection is the ability to find where the image came from.  First click on the image.  Most often, in the image metadata (attached information), you can find a book title and call number.  Then find the book in the CCS Library stacks!


Art History Help

The Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History presents a chronological, geographical, and thematic exploration of global art history through The Metropolitan Museum of Art collection.  It is a reference, research, and teaching tool conceived for students and scholars of art history.
