Digital content means more than working with just image files. It means playing video clips, playing audio files, and launching PDF's.  LUNA  supports all types of media and allows for seamless playback.

On this page:

Audio, Video, etc

In addition to supporting image files, LUNA also supports a broad array of file formats such as audio, video, text, PDF, QTVR, etc. These different file formats could be part of an institutional collection, or can be brought into LUNA using the My Uploads feature.

Books in LUNA

The LUNA  BookReader  integrates the discovery and display of compound objects such as books, manuscripts, and newspapers in  LUNA . You can search inside a  BookReader  object, turn its pages, and zoom into the text. But you can also add whole books and/or individual pages to your  Active Media Group  and pages can be used in  Slide Shows  and presentations.

In addition to descriptive data, BookReader objects are indexed for full text searching.

Browsing BookReader Objects

As with other media in LUNA, you can browse BookReader objects in the Thumbnail View. Below is a search result with both images and BookReaderobjects. The BookReader objects have a small pink book icon in the lower right corner of their thumbnail.









Viewing BookReader Objects

There are several ways to view BookReader objects in LUNA:


















Adding BookReader Objects to Media Groups

You can add a BookReader object to your Active Media Group by clicking on the "Add to my Active Media Group" icon in the upper right corner of the thumbnail for the BookReader object, or in the Detail View.






Adding Pages from BookReader Objects to Media Groups

You can add individual pages from a BookReader to your Active Media group from either the Full View or the Book Thumbnail view.

Adding Pages from BookReader Objects to the LUNA Workspace

Once a page has been added to an Active Media Group it can then be viewed in that Media Group and then added to the LUNA Workspace.
