Improved image delivery
Our new image viewer allows users to zoom, focus in on and clip sections, move through multi-page documents, and open the image in a separate window. Only selected DLG-hosted images will be available in the viewer.
Enhanced collection pages
These new pages will display collection metadata and additional resources (when available) including suggested readings, related links, and essays.
Holding institution pages
During usability testing prior to the launch of the new portal, our partners requested holding institution pages that would provide users with fuller information about partner institutions and their collections as well as a physical location and public contact information.
