Feedback form is now closed.
The Digital Tools for Manuscript Study project aims to build open, modular tool environments to support image-based scholarly research. Our work involves integrating Omeka, an open-source platform for digital exhibits; Mirador, a IIIF-compliant image viewer developed at Stanford; and VisColl, a tool for the visualization of book structure. Our specific objective is to situate these tools within the International Image Interoperability Framework. By making these existing and easy-to-use tools IIIF compliant, we hope to grow IIIF's capacity to share cultural heritage images and expose them to new kinds of inquiry. Our work on this project is guided by our team's broader digital humanities research and development practices. Audience members will learn about the IIIF specification and how it has been integrated into popular research tools using a collaborative and user-centered approach to development and design. Intended for librarians, archivists, developers, and researchers.
