International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF)

The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) provides research and cultural heritage institutions with an unsurpassed approach to surfacing and sharing image- and AV-based digital objects on the Internet for display, analysis, comparison, annotation, and aggregation. Using W3C Web-standard methods, libraries, archives, museums, vendors and researchers have converged on a community-based approach for presenting and interacting with hundreds of millions of digital assets and their associated metadata from thousands of institutions in a world-wide, nteroperable ecosystem of repositories, software and scholars. This workshop will provide an introduction to IIIF, its current adopters and benefits, the APIs and data models underlying it, and examples of how to adopt and leverage it through widely available software or custom development. Participants will gain an orientiation on the frameowkr, and the knowledge to apply IIIF for both assets and their metadata in a local context. No prior experience with IIIF is required. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops for interactive exercises.

Responsibilities include oversight of IT operations, user experience, web programming, digital preservation, and open scholarly publishing. I have particular interest in interoperability between information systems and the development of standards and collaborations to facilitate that. Current work includes digital preservation (OCFL), evolution of the FOLIO library services platform, use of linked open data for description and discovery of library resources (LD4L/LD4P), image and A/V interoperability (IIIF), and repositories for open-access scholarly publishing (including work with Samvera and ORCID). Past projects include technical direction of the arXiv e-print archive and development of the OAI-PMH and ResourceSync standards.
