THEN we would love to have you join us at IIIF Texas!

Come participate in a day-long event that will educate you, inspire you and your team, and reinvent your technical infrastructure.

The event is hosted by the University of North Texas Library and is tentatively planned to include:

  • Introduction to IIIF, including how to get started

  • The IIIF Community and Consortium

  • IIIF Case Studies from Texas: The Portal to Texas History, The Harry Ransom Center, Texas State University Libraries Cabeza De Vaca IIIF Manuscript Project, IIIF & Collaborative Manuscript Transcription with FromThePage

  • Fun with IIIF & Machine Learning with IIIF

  • Audience discussion

Light refreshments will be provided; lunch is on your own.



The IIIF initiative started small. It was conceived on the back of a napkin at a Cuban restaurant in Palo Alto, California at a dinner of technologists from Stanford University, the British Library, and Oxford University. From these humble beginnings, the list of IIIF partners, and its impacts on digital cultural heritage, have steadily grown (http://iiif.io/community/). Since 2011, this community of academic and national libraries, museums, archives, nonprofits and commercial organizations has worked together to agree on common APIs for image delivery and developed an ecosystem of compliant systems.

IIIF is a community-driven initiative committed to providing access to high quality image resources. The IIIF community encourages and supports the development of compatible image serving and viewing software that is easy to install and provides a dazzling user experience.

As with all IIIF events the IIIF Code of Conduct applies to this event.
