Event Description
IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework), pronounced “triple-eye-F”, is a suite of open-source technical standards built to address the common needs of cultural heritage organizations that deliver digital images of their collections. But IIIF is also more than a technical standard: it is a rich community of people engaged in the use of digital media for research, preservation, and scholarship. Libraries, museums, and archives around the world are making their digital collections available via IIIF and the community that has arisen around the standard are continually developing new tools for viewing, annotating, manipulating, analyzing, and studying digital media.. This session will provide participants with an introduction to the framework with a focus on how digital images (and other media) can be used in the classroom, an overview of the tools available for working with digital images, and the types of assignments afforded by those tools. Absolutely no experience with IIIF is expected or necessary.
