2022 IIIF Showcase in Cambridge, MA - 06 June 2022

On Monday, June 6th, the IIIF Consortium will present a special half-day IIIF Showcase to introduce newcomers to IIIF, hosted jointly by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

  • If you are interested in engaging with other museum, library, archive and technical professionals…
  • If you are ready to learn more about using and sharing your institution’s images…
  • If you’d like to know more about IIIF…

…then we would love to have you join us at the IIIF Showcase. All are welcome!

Come join us for a half-day free event that will educate, inspire, and reinvent your technical infrastructure. The event is free, but space is limited. Please register early to guarantee yourself a spot! All event proceedings will be in English unless otherwise noted.

Free showcase registration available on Conftool.

For accommodation and travel information please see the logistics page.

Who is it for?

The IIIF Showcase is an event for people new to IIIF to get an overview and discover the latest developments in a single event (though it offers something for everyone, so returning attendees are welcome as well!). It assumes no previous experience with IIIF and will cover the full gamut of IIIF from the basics to Showcases of the latest developments in the IIIF Community.

What will I learn?

  • Use cases and best practices from IIIF adopters
  • How to get started with IIIF at your institution
  • Leveraging open source software to get more out of your collection of images and video
  • The latest developments in the community including IIIF A/V and 3D
  • And more!
