SHIMMER is the collective name for Sheffield Hallam University's online Image and Multi-Media Collections. These contain over 24,000 digital images from our collections for you to use in teaching and learning.

Different SHIMMER Collections are listed (left) under Collection Selection. Tutorials for SHIMMER are available from LUNA Imaging, the host software company.


Luna Commons Collections contain over 320,000 images. At the moment, for security reasons, these can no longer be accessed simultaneously with SHIMMER. We will be restoring selected collections as soon as possible. The Collections can be viewed separately from the following links:
  • AMICA : containing over 105,000 low resolution images of works of art from contributing museums worldwide.
  • Archivision : 53,000 low resolution images of the history of architecture
  • The full list is available from this link: LUNA Commons Collections.
