Event Details

The Digital Repository of Ireland, UCD Library, and DARIAH Ireland are hosting an event on 13th March 2018 focusing on the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF), an approach to sharing digital images and other media that is revolutionising the way images are experienced on the Web. The day will be composed of a Showcase and a Workshop.

The morning Showcase is geared toward individuals and institutional representatives interested in learning about the basics and benefits of IIIF. It will feature talks from institutions and digital agencies using IIIF, including the Digirati, the IIIF Consortium, the Digital Repository of Ireland, University College Dublin, and the National University of Ireland Galway. Topics covered include an intro to IIIF, implementations in Ireland, future directions, crowd-sourcing and annotations, IIIF communities of interest, and how to get involved.

The afternoon Workshop provides opportunities to explore the interests and use cases of attendees, while also offering a forum for developers and others who have already started working with IIIF.

Registration covers participation in both the Showcase and Workshop.

About IIIF:

IIIF is a community-drive initiative that has been adopted widely by libraries, museums, archives, software companies and other organizations in a remarkably short period of time. IIIF enables fast, rich zoom and pan delivery of images, manipulations, annotations, and the assemblage or comparison of images from other IIIF-based resources across the web, regardless of source. The more repositories that adopt it, the better it becomes as a shared resource. For more information, see:
