The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) is a community of academic and national libraries, research institutions, museums, archives, nonprofits and commercial organizations that are committed to interoperable image and media delivery on the web. Based on common application programming interfaces (APIs) for image and metadata delivery, IIIF has supported the development of world-class image delivery and comparison software, cultivating a growing and sustainable community model for interoperable image repositories and an improved user experience for researchers.
