An Introduction to IIIF

13 March, 2019 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Sesion lead

Tom Crane (Digirati & IIIF Editorial Committee)


The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) is revolutionising access to digital objects of cultural heritage, by providing a standard for viewers and servers to implement. Hundreds of institutions (including many European National Libraries) are making their collections available using the new standard. As well as reducing costs of implementation, the emergence of IIIF for publishing digital objects (digitised books, maps, manuscripts, archives, artworks) is driving innovation and opening up new research possibilities for annotation, crowdsourcing and machine learning across collections.
