Introducing the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF)
Event type: Lecture
Cultural heritage materials from research libraries, museums, and archives are increasingly becoming available online. Users have moved from wanting to simply access materials online to wanting to use, develop and re-purpose them in ways that push the boundaries of research and open new avenues in teaching. TheInternational Image Interoperability Framework (http://iiif.io) is a community-driven, collaborative initiative committed to making these digital materials easily accessible and usable for scholars worldwide.
This lecture will explore the use of IIIF in an international context, and will also describe the implementation of IIIF standards at the Bodleian Library.
