  4. Installing Lacuna


Lacuna is a free, open-source tool that can be downloaded (via Github) and hosted on a website or your school’s or institution’s server. Lacuna is not a service that we provide, but rather is a product that we have designed and want to make free and widely available. We will provide a guide for the installation and use of it, but do not offer significant technical support.

Installing Lacuna

  1. Before installing, institutions and licensees need to digitally agree to an “Institutional Agreement.”
  2. Upon installation, all users will check a box agreeing to the Terms of Use.
  3. Go to our Github page to download Lacuna and install to your server. The bottom of the page has detailed instructions and contact information if you need help. The instructions include:
