Welcome to the IIIF4Research Network!

This AHRC and Irish Research Council funded collaborative research network is focused on investigating the potential for innovative forms of scholarly discussion and interchange offered by the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF).

IIIF enables easier sharing, annotation and manipulation of digital images from libraries, archives, galleries, and museums across institutional and national boundaries, and offers researchers exciting new possibilities for joint analysis, documentation and discussion of primary materials.

The core aims and objectives of this research network center around the four workshops at Glasgow, Durham, Dublin and Aberystwyth each of which focuses on building a dialogue between arts and humanities researchers, curators and information professionals. These conversations are intended to develop research-driven agendas for the deployment and development of IIIF to investigate a wide range of primary materials and archives relevant to humanities research domains. We also have some upcoming outputs to clarify and make public some of our key findings.

Stay in touch!
