Visual Resources: Do It Yourself LUNA Help

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

Beyond the General Tutorial

This page goes beyond the general LUNA tutorial found under the "For Faculty" and "For Students" tabs (above) in order to answer frequently asked questions and provide deeper instruction.  Personalized faculty instruction is always an option if preferred.

Important Announcement: Luna has a new look that makes navigation easier.  However, please DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK US FOR HELP if you find Luna features in unfamiliar places.  We are here during regular office hours (8-4).  And, as always, your questions, requests, and suggestions are our top priority.  (313) 664-7643 or (313) 664-7629.
