We are pleased to announce the release of Insight v6.2 + LUNA. It is an especially exciting release for our community
of users as it includes the completion of the LUNA Commons development with newly added functionality in the LUNA Publisher.
With v6.2 institutions can now independently publish collections to the LUNA Commons (www.lunacommons.org) as well as
aggregate collections from the LUNA Commons. While most other collection building tools create isolated collections
we’ve built a system which allows institutions to easily share and promote their public collections.
It also means we’ve made it easy for institutions to gain access to free, valuable content just by upgrading to
As our clients upgrade to v6.2 the list of available free collections will continue to grow. To see what is currently
available visit www.lunacommons.org.
