Pitts Theology Library has released a major update to its popular online resource, the Digital Image Archive (DIA), a collection of more than 58,000 images scanned from over 9,000 items in the library’s rare book collections.

The updates include cleaner display of images, compliance with mobile devices, and a simpler, more powerful search interface. The improved lectionary search is particularly noteworthy as a space where users can find curated DIA content organized by the text of the lectionary week. Images in the DIA include woodcuts of biblical scenes, portraits of major figures from church history, and illustrated title pages, all with customized metadata. Users can search the collection by keyword, Scripture text, or year of publication, and images can be downloaded in JPG or PDF format. These images are popular for use in church bulletins, newsletters, or presentations.

Non-commercial use of these images is free, and high-resolution images—ideal for publication or framing—are available for a small fee. For more information, visit the Digital Image Archive or contact the DIA team at dia@emory.edu.
