Many libraries and archives invest resources to digitise and present their collections online. This workshop will introduce an important emerging standard for digital collections - the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF). IIIF is a set of tools, standards, and a community of practice to make digital collections interoperable. This workshop will provide an introduction to IIIF and how it can be used in professional practice.
Learning outcomes from this workshop:
- Understand what IIIF is, how it is used, and why it is important for digital collection interoperability
- Evaluate when it makes sense to use IIIF for digital collections
- Generate and edit IIIF manifests
- Implement IIIF manifests within IIIF viewers
- Analyze IIIF-enabled digital collection platforms
