Event description
This limited-seat course will run over 5 days, conducted online with video tutorials and extensive tutoring/support opportunities.

About this Event

The course will cover:

  • Getting started with the Image API
  • Getting started with the Presentation API
  • Creating IIIF Manifests
  • Annotating IIIF resources
  • Setting up a basic annotation server
  • Introduction to various IIIF tools and techniques for scholarship

No prior knowledge of IIIF is required and the core sessions should be easily accessible to those with confidence using the Web. Prior knowledge of HTML and JSON syntax is useful but not required.

Note: This course is aimed at the European / African / Asian time zones. We plan to run a North and South American time friendly workshop in January 2021.

Overview

Participants will follow the online workshop materials including watching videos on the Image and Presentation APIs, and creating annotations with IIIF.

Support will be given by the IIIF Technical Coordinator in the form of a group Slack channel, daily group check-in sessions, and 1 to 1 meetings. Participants are encouraged to bring their own images to the workshop and work on a project during the week putting in to practice what they are learning and these will be demoed to other participants on the last day of the workshop.

After this class, participants will be able to:

  • Run a local image server
  • Annotate IIIF images
  • Build a IIIF Presentation manifest using the Bodleian Manifest Editor
  • Relate existing applications of IIIF to local user needs

Course details

The workshop will take place over five days (see schedule below). Participants typically need to dedicate 3-4 hours a day and follow the material for one topic a day.

Participants are expected to attend the Monday and Friday meetings in real time, and may drop in on the check-in meetings to meet other participants and discuss any ideas or discuss issues they are having.

Participants will need a laptop on which they can install software and should be able to commit to a minimum of 3-4 hours per day for the 5-day course to get the most out of it. They will need to install Zoom, Slack, and various workshop specific tools.

As well as the core sessions listed above there are a number of guest presentations that were recorded during the first online workshop available in the Workshop notes. If participants are interested in hearing about other tools we will try and source extra Guest presentations during the week. These sessions will be recorded for later viewing by participants that can’t make these extra calls.

If you have any questions about this event please reach out to us at events@iiif.io.

Fellowship seats

IIIF Consortium is committed to being accessible and inclusive, and we’re committed to reducing barriers for people who want to learn. We know that institutions have different policies in support of training and development, as well as differing abilities to fund activities. We don’t want potential IIIF users excluded because of limits such as these.

Likewise, making seats available during our online workshops is a tangible means by which the IIIF Consortium can encourage participation from a more diverse body of institutions and community members.

To these ends, we’re making a set number of seats in every online workshop available as fellowship tickets with no cost to attendees. IIIF-C will cover all ticketing and platform fees associated with these seats.

If your institution does not have funding for training opportunities and you count yourself among the groups listed below, then these fellowship seats are available to you. These tickets are first-come, first-served, and made available on the honor system; we do not require any documentation of any kind to claim these tickets.

Candidates from under-represented groups in the IIIF Community may include, but not be limited to:

  • People of color, ability/disability, non-binary gender identities, etc., as well as members of underrepresented and/or marginalized groups that don’t fit into the categories listed above
  • Attendees from under-represented countries and geographic regions, particularly the Global South

To claim a fellowship seat, register for the workshop and select the “fellowship ticket.”
