IIIF for Open Access

Sharing, Consuming, and Annotating the World’s Images
Wednesday, Oct 23, 2019 - 11:00am to 12:30pm

This session demonstrated use of the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) through the lens of open access. This introduction to IIIF highlighted recent use cases and, through dynamic visual examples, participants gained an understanding of the model and technological components behind IIIF and how it supports “openness."  The session concluded with a short, hands-on demonstration of IIIF features with time for exploring IIIF and investigating further resources. Presenters then discussed how UCLA Library is adopting IIIF in digital collections to reduce institutional barriers and promote re-use.

Presented by Dianne Weinthal and Dawn Childress. 

Part of UCLA Library's annual International Open Access Week celebration.
