Christopher Morse of Harvard University’s Arts & Humanities Research Computing department will visit Boston College on Monday, March 27 to lead a Coffee & Code session, Hacking Mirador, at 11 am. The goal of this tutorial is to introduce participants to the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) and the open-source IIIF image viewer Mirador. Together these tools support and enhance scholarly publications for the web, digital exhibits, and even course teaching materials.
Although IIIF has been adopted by a growing number of institutions around the world, there does not yet exist a single, common point of access or user interface for working with IIIF content on the fly. For this reason, this workshop aims to clarify the research needs of faculty, staff, and students in order to inform the development of a unified workspace going forward.
As a part of this tutorial, Christopher Morse will demonstrate how to retrieve and edit image manifests from Harvard’s collections, import them into the Mirador viewer, and create annotations for those images. In addition, the workshop features alternative IIIF image collections from partnering institutions and how they can be imported into Mirador as well.
This event is free and open to the public, but we kindly request that you register.
