The International Image Interoperability Framework: What is it, and how can I use it? Workshop
Visual Resources Association Foundation Regional Workshop
May 11, 2018
Hosted by The University of Texas at Austin
Sponsored by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and the Visual Resources Association Foundation
Access to image-based resources is fundamental to research, scholarship and the transmission of cultural knowledge. Digital images are a container for much of the information content in the Web-based delivery of images, books, newspapers, manuscripts, maps, scrolls, single sheet collections, and archival materials. Yet much of the Internet’s image-based resources are locked up in silos, with access restricted to bespoke, locally built applications. The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) is a set of shared application programming interface (API) specifications for interoperable functionality in digital image repositories. The IIIF is comprised of and driven by a community of libraries, museums, archives, software companies, and other organizations working together to create, test, refine, implement and promote the IIIF specifications. This workshop will provide a clear sense of what IIIF is, how it works, and how it can be applied to enhance image access and resource sharing.
SCHEDULE FOR MAY 11, 2018

The workshop will be taught by Ben Brumfield and Sara Carlstead Brumfield of Brumfield Labs. Ben and Sara have been working with IIIF for years, participating and presenting in IIIF groups on discovery and manuscripts, and leading workshops for museums and libraries. Their technical projects include building IIIF support into FromThePage, a manuscript transcription software and developing Pontiiif, an IIIF manifest search engine.
