Exploring IIIF for Digital Humanities
In this lecture, the basics of IIIF – International Image Interoperability Framework – are presented through the lens of its key benefits for research in Digital Humanities. As an open data API, IIIF allows for clear and well documented research data management practices, for projects ranging from teaching over scholarly annotation or editing up to data mining.
This lecture is organized in conjunction with the UAntwerp’s Summer School on “Digital Humanities: Processing and Analysing Images.” Registration for the summer school itself has closed, but attending the speaker’s keynote lecture is free and open to all.
