Abstract: Local implementation of the IIIF API’s is no small challenge. Implementing all of the IIIF API’s is an even bigger challenge. In this panel presentation you will hear from several IIIF adopters about their experience in implementing IIIF at their organization. Presenters will focus on the technical challenges associated with their implementation, and the interoperability between the API’s. A question and answer discussion session will follow presenter presentations.
