Digital Images for Teaching and Learning
The Luna Imaging Insight software program at http://luna.pomona.edu allows faculty, students and staff to manage, access, use, and present digital images across the Pomona campus. Using Insight, viewers experience images in a revolutionary way. Complete cataloguing data accompanies every image, allowing for in-depth searches of the collections. Using Insight, multiple images from different artists, places or periods, can be viewed side-by-side. Or, the end user can create their own collections of images by saving groups of images online.
