Oggetto: Improving access to image collections: IIIF showcase & workshop 16
& 17 March, Edinburgh


** apologies for cross posting ***

IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) is a developing
standard for accessing and presenting image collections. It also enables
interoperability of collections in a standardised way, thereby providing
opportunities to collate and/or co-curate disparate image collections. Other
IIIF tools provide authentication control and the ability for users to
annotate images.

On 16 and 17 March Edinburgh University Library and National Library of
Scotland are co-hosting 2 events about IIIF. On 16 March there will be an
IIIF Technical Workshop that will bring together developers that have
already, or are considering, implementing IIIF.  On 17 March there will be a
IIIF Showcase with presentations from Edinburgh University Library, National
Library of Scotland, National Library of Wales, Durham University,
University College Dublin, The Bodleian Library, Digirati, Cogapp and
others, showing how IIIF can be used to present image collections. There
will also be a non-technical introduction to IIIF and more information about
how you can get involved with the IIIF community. 

More information and registration details about each event is available on

*	IIIF Technical Workshop 16 March
*	Improving access to image collections: IIIF Showcase 17 March 

We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh.

Best wishes
