IIIF: The International Image Interoperability Framework

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) is an evolving set of APIs for image delivery. First created in 2011, it has seen rapid adoption by international libraries and archives, and in this talk we will explain how it can also benefit museums.

Using IIIF provides the twin advantages of flexible image delivery, and interoperability with a growing range of viewers and tools that promote digital scholarship and reuse. We will provide a brief overview of what IIIF is, followed by a guide for how to implement it (both in terms of processes and software options), followed by details of how to take advantage of its many features, which include on-the-fly generation of images at any size, zoom level, crop area or rotation, as well as the ability to use multiple different image viewers to surface metadata and relationships between images.

Finally, we will give real-world examples of how supporting IIIF can directly benefit your organisation, from the ease of updating website presentation formats, via the advanced features that can easily be supported, and concluding with some ideas for how IIIF can lead to innovative new ways to present and analyse your collection images.
