Mirador 3 Hands On User Workshop

Jack Reed (Stanford University Libraries)

This workshop will introduce Mirador 3 to end users. The workshop will focus on giving attendees hands on experience with using Mirador 3. Mirador 3, is a rewrite and new architecture of the popular comparison and visualization tool, Mirador.

Workshop attendees will have hands on learning with the following:

- An introduction to Mirador 3

- Mirador 3 user experience goals

- Mirador 3 feature tour

- Mirador Workspaces

- Mirador Companion Windows

- Mirador 2 vs Mirador 3 comparison

Part of this workshop will include a feedback session where attendees will be able to provide feedback to the core team.

 

IIIF für Einsteiger, eine deutschsprachige Einführung (A German-language introduction to IIIF)

Leander Seige, Michael Büchner, Stefanie Rühle

(A German-language introduction to IIIF)

Ziel des Workshops ist es, Kolleginnen und Kollegen aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum den Einstieg in IIIF zu erleichtern. Der Workshop richtet sich vor allem an Teilnehmer aus Einrichtungen des Kulturerbes die wenig oder keine Erfahrung mit IIIF haben. Der Workshop führt in die Grundlagen von IIIF ein und gibt einen Überblick über den Standard. Mit Hilfe von Anwendungsszenarien werden Möglichkeiten und Herausforderungen aufgezeigt. Zudem bietet der Workshop Raum für Fragen und Diskussionen.

Leitung: Leander Seige, Michael Büchner, Stefanie Rühle

Dauer: 2 x 90 Minuten

Zielgruppe: Kolleginnen und Kollegen aus dem Bereich des Kulturerbes, die an IIIF interessiert sind aber noch nichts oder nur sehr wenig über den Standard wissen.

Themen:

- Was ist IIIF

- Einsatz von IIIF am Beispiel der UB Leipzig

- Nutzung von IIIF im DFG Projekt „Handschriftenportal“

- Entwicklungsstand und Nutzung des IIIF-Viewers Mirador3

- Zentralisierte vs. verteilte Architektur: Nutzungsszenarien für IIIF in der Deutschen Digitalen Bibliothek.

 

UV Half Day Showcase and Workshops

Edward Silverton (Mnemoscene), Tom Crane (Digirati)

The UV Workshop is divided into two sessions. The first will showcase recent developments, including:

- The establishment of a Steering Committee for

the Universal Viewer

- The IIIF AV support for the British Library’s Save our

Sounds programme

- A look at the British Library’s recent user testing

sessions

- Progress on IIIF-Commons libraries and components

- An exciting new 3D extension built in collaboration with https://morphosource.org

We will introduce the UV’s possible roadmap for the next 12 months, such as the British Library’s UV Phase 3 project, support for more display of textual content and other annotations, OCR, and geolocation enhancements. If you have questions and/or suggestions for the UV’s directions, bring them along!

After the break we’ll split into two parts.

- One session will continue to look at the user experience of the Universal Viewer in more depth, and dig into usage scenarios and the roadmap.

- The other session will be a round-table developer session, hands-on at times, for answering technical questions and exploring the potential for reusable code libraries.

 

Mirador 3 Hands On Technical Workshop

Jack Reed (Stanford University Libraries), Gary Geisler (Stanford University Libraries)

This workshop will introduce Mirador 3, its technical underpinnings, and give attendees hands on experience with the project. Mirador 3, is a rewrite and new architecture of the popular comparison and visualization tool, Mirador.

Workshop attendees will have hands on learning with the following:

- Installation of Mirador 3

- Mirador 3 feature tour

- Mirador 3’s APIs and state management

- How to customize and theme Mirador 3

- Build a plugin for Mirador 3

This workshop will give Mirador adopters the basis to build and adopt on top of Mirador 3 and provide feedback to the core team.

 

Creating, delivering and consuming IIIF Manifests within the Goobi Community

Steffen Hankiewicz (intranda GmbH), Jan Vonde (intranda GmbH)

Description of the workshop

Our comprehensive, hands-on Goobi IIIF workshop is designed to give all participants the skills they need to generate valid, standardised metadata from directories containing images using very simple resources in less than 20 minutes and without further help. The metadata can then be exported as METS/MODS (libraries), LIDO (museums) or even in TEI format for digital humanities. At the same time, Goobi-to-go automatically generates valid IIIF Presentation manifests. That means the images are immediately available via the IIIF Image API and can be used straight away in any number of other IIIF consumers (e.g. Mirador).

In the second part of the workshop, participants will gain an insight into our current developments using IIIF interfaces in combination with machine-learning techniques for various purposes, e.g. to perform image and full text analyses.

Background

Goobi is an open-source application. For over 14 years, it has brought together many cultural institutions in currently 17 countries as part of a single digitisation community, focusing equally on the coordination of both simple and complex workflows (Goobi workflow) for digitisation projects and on the publication of the digitised results of those projects (Goobi viewer). Alongside standardised interfaces such as OAI-PMH and SRU, IIIF plays a crucial role in ensuring interoperability between published digital collections and different external data consumers. In light of the growing interaction with the burgeoning field of digital humanities, the Goobi community needed to make its numerous portals and the collections of many different cultural institutions available in readily consumable form for research purposes. With this in mind, Goobi already supports the IIIF Image API 2.1, IIIF Presentation API 2.1 and IIIF Change Discovery API in draft status as well as Web Annotations und Open Annotations for use in the context of crowdsourcing.

Goobi does much more than simply provide a range of data for other systems and consumers. In fact, the whole Goobi community is now increasingly focused on the use of IIIF APIs in new scenarios. In particular, Goobi makes good use of these interfaces in various ongoing development projects that can harness machine-learning processes to identify or generate new data. Machine-learning techniques based on pattern recognition and text analysis have already been used in the past to recognise publication types and segment content indices. However, now that data can be obtained from standardised interfaces, these techniques are no longer dependent solely on locally stored data from the file system. Equally, the Goobi community now benefits enormously from the latest OCR developments in Tesseract, although without further training data those developments cannot yet provide the desired recognition quality. Working without IIIF is no longer a viable option, whether your development project involves using machine-learning techniques to generate ground truth data and extract illustrations or creating synthetic texts with unusual fonts based on text segments and letter coordinates. Over the last two years in particular, it has become clear within the Goobi community that various IIIF interfaces will be needed if newer projects and therefore newer research data are to be viable in the long term.
