Digital Image Collection How-Tos

Here are instructions and examples of how to create permanent links to images or searches, how to find known items, and how to get into our page-by-page pre-1640 Shakespeare quartos.



How do I create a permalink to one or more selected images, or to a search?


Using LUNA on the web: At any point while in LUNA you can click on the Share This link and copy the displayed URL. This shortened permalink URL can be pasted into an email, text document or instant message so you can share your work with others. This is not the same as copying the URL from the browser. The Share This URL will ensure that the exact placement, zooming, and general look of your current view are preserved.

  • Here's an example that will let you zoom in on the map at the top of this page.
  • Here's an example that will retrieve all items with the keyword "map."

Follow this link for more on linking and embedding using LUNA.



How do I search for a known item?


In many cases only abbreviated data records are provided. So a very useful LUNA search to know how to do is to search by call number:

  1. Choose Advanced Search in LUNA
  2. Use the third set of search boxes, the one that provides find this exact wording:
  3. Then choose Source Call Number  from the field dropdown
  4. When you begin typing the shelfmark you'll get a dropdown showing you the available items in the call number range you are searching. Click the call number you want.


How do I search for images of the Folger building?


The main Folger Shakespeare Library building was designed by architect Paul Philippe Cret and is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. A variety of Virtual Tour features on this website let you take a closer look, but the image database also includes over 100 images of the building. To browse these shots of the architecture and grounds:

  1. Choose Advanced Search in LUNA
  2. Use the third set of search boxes, the one that provides find this exact wording:
  3. Then choose Digital Image Type from the field dropdown
  4. Type 'FSL building' and click the search button. 


How do I access page-by-page views books in the Folger collection?


Check out Folger Tooltips: Cover-to-Cover for details on accessing cover-to-cover page images of early printed books and bound manuscripts from the Folger collection.
