Visual Resources Center
The Visual Resources Center creates high-quality images and provides an array of services and resources for instructors and students in Art History and the Humanities. The VRC manages LUNA—the main database for art images used for teaching at UChicago—and maintains several collections of art images for teaching and research. VRC staff also provide access to our digitization lab equipment and consultations for image-based reference questions, photography and scanning advice, personal image management, fair use and copyright concerns, and visual literacy.
