Luna @ Pomona College

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 LUNA, viewers experience images in a revolutionary way. Complete cataloguing data accompanies every image, allowing for in-depth searches of the collections. Using LUNA, 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.

Types of LUNA Access

Access to LUNA collections are based on a combination of IP address and managed account privileges. They are as follows:

Off Campus: Have the ability to view collections that are public to the world. These include the Pomona College Museum of Art as well as a number of CCDL collections. An example of this type of user might be a person in Ecuador who has no ties to the Claremont Colleges.

On Campus within the 7C IP Range: Have the ability to view all the public collections in addition to collections that have images that are licenced for view by faculty, staff, and students in the 7C’s. For simple viewing no account is needed. If one would like to save images and groups users are encouraged to register a self service account. An example of this type of user might be a person viewing LUNA from their dorm room at Pitzer College. * Please note that when a user leaves the 7C IP Range access will default to Off Campus privileges.

Off Campus with a LUNA Generic Viewer Account: These accounts have access to all the content that is available to Off Campus and On Campus users within the 7C IP Range. These users must request the Generic LUNA Off-Campus Viewer user name and password here. This allows for viewing images globally without the ability to group images. An example of this user might be a Scripps College student who lives off campus in the city of Upland.

Off Campus Self Registered with Escalated Privileges: These accounts have access to all the content that is available to Off Campus and On Campus users within the 7C IP Range. These users must self register an account, if they have not already, then request an escalation in privileges. To request this type of account please send your name, college email address, and self registered LUNA user name to itg@pomona.edu. This type of account allows for global image access and the ability to save and group images. An example of this type of user might be a Pomona student who is in New York for the summer and needs LUNA access to conduct research.

Legacy Insight Accounts: These accounts typically for Faculty and Staff who are collection builders or those who need access to private collections such as Geology or Communications. Additionally, these accounts are for those who at one time utilized the depreciated LUNA Insight Java Client. For these accounts please contact its@pomona.edu for assistance.

LUNA Java Client

As of the Fall of 2012 we have received word from LUNA Imaging, the creators of the LUNA imaging suite that the LUNA Insight Java Client will no longer be developed. It is now orphaned software. Users must now access all LUNA collections using the LUNA web at http://luna.pomona.edu
