The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) encompasses a large and growing community of interested individuals and organizations and a Consortium (IIIF Consortium or IIIF-C) of institutions dedicated to leading and sustaining the IIIF. As a community-driven initiative, IIIF thrives on active discussion, input, and feedback from a wide array of diverse individuals from libraries, museums, cultural heritage institutions, software firms, and other organizations working with digital images and audio/visual materials. We welcome any organization or individual interested in adopting the IIIF, developing software to support it, or giving feedback on the effort to get involved. All participants in all IIIF activities are expected to follow the IIIF code of conduct.
