Europeana Aligns With International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF)
One of Europeana’s main goals is to make it easier for institutions and individuals in the digital heritage sector to share better quality digital content – you can learn more in our recently published Europeana Publishing Framework.
The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) has huge potential to help us achieve this goal. If you’re not familiar with it, IIIF is a standard for serving and consuming high quality images online, with the ability to instruct a server about the desired resolution, or image manipulations such as rotation and zooming. It also makes it more straightforward to publish complex aggregations of images, for instance bringing together a medieval manuscript text and an illumination that was stripped away from it.
