Implementation of the IIIF Presentation API 3.0 based on Software Support: Use Case of an Incremental IIIF Deployment within a Citizen Science Project

  • 1. Digital Humanities Lab, University of Basel


As part of the Participatory Knowledge Practices in Analogue and Digital Image Archives (PIA) research project, we have been implementing Linked Open Usable Data (LOUD) standards including the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) specifications to disseminate digital objects, their related metadata and streamline our processes. We have taken an incremental approach to IIIF deployment, first by installing the Simple Image Presentation Interface (SIPI), a IIIF Image API 3.0 server, followed by conceiving a workflow based on cookbook recipes created and vetted by the IIIF community for the generation of resources compatible with the IIIF Presentation API 3.0, one of the key components of our architecture. This workflow resulted in a monitoring exercise of this community-driven effort, principally to align the requirements of PIA and the IIIF Presentation API support of software clients.
