The GlueX experiment at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) has started data taking in late 2014 with its first commissioning beam. All of the detector systems are now performing at or near design specifications and events are being fully reconstructed. Linearly-polarized photons were successfully produced through coherent bremsstrahlung. An upgrade of the particle identification (PID) system with a GlueX DIRC detector, planned for 2018, will allow identification of final state kaons. The construction of the GlueX DIRC has already started. One of the plans for GlueX is to study properties of short-range correlations (SRC) in nuclei, which will shed new light on the quark-gluon structure of bound nucleons.
