IIIF Workshops

IIIF is an emerging standard for publishing and interacting with images. Brumfield Labs has been working with the IIIF Consortium since 2014, when FromThePage was the first software beyond image viewers to accept IIIF based images. We’ve received two commissioned implementation grants from the IIIF Consortium, spoken at the annual IIIF conferences in 2017 and 2018, and spoken on IIIF at the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (2017, 2018). We’ve conducted workshops for the American Art Collaborative and the Visual Resources Association Foundation. We wrote the IIIF Implementation Guide.

We offer in-person IIIF training workshops for institutions or groups.

Here’s what former attendees have to say about our IIIF workshop:

Attendees at previous workshops have said the most helpful takeaways were:

We can tailor the workshop to your institution’s needs.

If your institution is willing to provide a location, we could also put on a public workshop. Your attendees would attend at a reduced price and we would publicize the workshop to others in the area.

We can also pair the workshop with IIIF implementation consulting, starting with an implementation questionnaire and creating an institution-specific roadmap.
