The International Image Interoperability Framework community (http://iiif.io/) is hosting a one day information sharing event at the British Library about the use of images in and across Cultural Heritage institutions. The day will focus on how museums, galleries, libraries and archives, or any online image service, can take advantage of a powerful technical framework for interoperability between image repositories. This event will be valuable for organizational decision makers, repository and collection managers, software engineers, and anyone interested in exploring the wide range of use cases that are seamlessly enabled by the framework. This is the only such event planned, so don't miss it!
Attendance is free, and widespread dissemination of the event is encouraged.
A detailed program is available and will cover:
- Why IIIF?
- Walkthrough of the Framework
- Software and Solutions Showcase
- Getting Started with IIIF
There will be many opportunities for discussion, questions and networking throughout the day with new and existing partners including multiple national libraries, top tier research institutions, commercial providers and major aggregators. The currently registered participants are listed below.
Lunch is not provided but ample time has been allotted, and there are great restaurants near the venue. The twitter hashtag to use for the event is: #iiif
Please join iiif-discuss for announcements and discussion regarding the event.
