• a fresh and more intuitive user interface
• a better experience on mobile devices
• advanced zooming and panning
• persistent URLs for easier sharing
• support for IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework), to encourage creative re-use of images.
The new digital image pool will also include maps and architectural drawings. To promote sharing and re-use, it will be limited to include only images that are not culturally sensitive, and are out of copyright.
The Digital Image Pool is great for quick searches for out-of-copyright images that you can re-use. Just remember, to search *all* of the Library's digitised images, and descriptions for your research needs. Head to the SLV catalogue.

A recent publication out of the National Library of Australia Digby & Claude is written and illustrated by Emma Allen and Hannah Sommerville as a picture book. It touches on a common theme of constant change within the urban environment.
Digby and Claude feel connected to their neighbourhood and community. This is a story about friendship, about imagination and connection to place, but it is also about change. As the Main Street in their town undergoes development, change is also reflected in their own adventures to build a secret hiding place. “Claude agreed that the best places of all are where you belong”.
Though set in the past, this story remains relevant today. This book can connect readers young and old to the place where they live and what it means to “belong”.
