The IIIF: WWWhat? How?



On Tuesday 17 October 2017, we welcomed Geoff Moss (Courtauld Institute of Art) to #DAHRG. He provided us with an introduction to the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF). You can catch up with Geoff’s presentation and view all the live demos here:

Full details:

An ever-expanding community of the world’s leading research libraries and image repositories are aiming to collaboratively produce an interoperable technology and community framework for image delivery. This initiative is known as IIIF. You may have heard of their work if you have used viewers such as Diva.js or Mirador

Access to image-based resources is fundamental to art historical research and scholarship, so #DAHRG championed the initiative at the group’s first workshop of  2017/18. 

In this film, Geoff Moss introduce us to IIIF; tells us about the initiative’s history and aims; and demonstrates ways in which it could help you with your work – both in terms of research and presentation. 

Geoff is the Web Developments Manager here at The Courtauld and has more than a decade’s experience working in higher education and web technology – both within universities and through his own business.
