This workshop will aim to introduce the International Image Operability Framework (http://iiif.io), and explain the benefits of supporting this standard, which is being rapidly adopted by cultural organizations worldwide.

This will be followed by a quick review of upcoming IIIF standards, and a section showcasing some concrete examples of how it is being used at several institutions including the Qatar Digital Library, Princeton University, Europeana and the DPLA itself. Finally, we will have an open Q&A session where the panel will be on hand to provide advice on what you would need to do in order to provide IIIF support for your own organization.
