Jacqueline Spafford is Visual Resources Curator in the Department of Art History & Architecture at UC Santa Barbara. The transition from teaching with 35mm slides to digital image projection has been bumpy, to say the least. Researchers and instructors who teach with images have been awaiting this shift, and compensating in creative ways. The UC system as a whole has taken a huge leap forward this year thanks to the involvement and leadership of the California Digital Library, and the collaborative efforts of the Visual Resources curators. Nearly 300,000 high-quality images are now available to UC users through a sophisticated and flexible program called LUNA Imaging Inc. Insight. This presentation provides potential users with a tour through the wealth and variety of images available, the search and presentation features of "Insight", and what other advances are in store.
