During the ALA Expo Luna Imaging, which has provided digital imaging services to libraries for many years through its Insight service, was demonstrating the Web 2.0 aspects of its new Luna browser. Director of Business Development Nancy Harm showed me how you can use Luna to link, embed, share, and expose your special image collections to the public, helping people discover and actually use the images to convey knowledge.

For web users tired of perusing random, uncategorized images on web-based photo-sharing services, there are plenty of way cool opportunities to work with photos here. Nancy challenged me to sign up for a free account at lunacommons.org, build a collection and share it here . I did. And here goes . . . my quick study of how the City of Philadelphia evolved from Wm. Penn’s plat map in the 1600s to thriving metropolis by 1876.
P.S. You can also embed your presentation on a web site or in your blog using the Luna widget . . .
