Teach Proposal: IIIF

IIIF–the International Image Interoperability Framework–is a rapidly growing standard for presenting digitized media in a reusable format.  After early implementation efforts by R1 universities and national libraries, the last two years have seen more widespread adoption by platforms like the Portal to Texas History and the Internet Archive and implementations in widely-available systems like CONTENTdm, CollectionSpace and eMuseum.  Nevertheless, use of IIIF by researchers in the humanities has been spotty, with few disciplines outside of medieval studies exploring the standard.

I’ve been teaching IIIF workshops, implementing the standard in software, and participating in the IIIF community for three years, and I’d be happy to teach an Introduction to IIIF to any interested campers.
