Wednesday, January 31 | 10:15AM–11:00AM CT | Preservation Hall, Second Floor
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) defines application programming interface specifications that permit the sharing of assets and functionality across different image repositories. In this session, we'll discuss IIIF and how it can help unify the teaching, learning, and research experience of faculty and students within and across the institution. We'll also discuss the implementation of an IIIF-based teaching and learning tool and demonstrate how the tool takes advantage of assets from across the world to engage students in a unique learning experience.

Outcomes: Understand the fundamentals of IIIF and how it can help unify image assets and functionality for teaching, research, and learning * Visualize how a tool built using IIIF standards can enhance the classroom experience * Obtain additional resources if interested in implementing IIIF and IIIF tools at your institution
