VisualCat (LUNA) to Be Retired June 30

VisualCat logo

UD’s local image collection, VisualCat (also known as LUNA), is being retired on June 30, 2013, and ARTstor’s Shared Shelf will be replacing it.

Shared Shelf allows us to integrate our local images seamlessly within ARTstor. You can see a list of UD’s Shared Shelf Collections — including UD Art History: Visual Resources Collection — at the bottom center of ARTstor’s search page. Searching for Shared Shelf images is just like searching for anything else in ARTstor.

Shared Shelf logoThe VRC has been migrating its digital image collection from VisualCat to Shared Shelf since February, and we expect to complete the process during the month of July. The vast majority of our images are already available in ARTstor, but a relatively small number of images (about 2,750) will not yet have migrated by June 30, and therefore will be inaccessible for the first few weeks of July. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Please feel free to contact me at any time for assistance during this transition.
