Description

Learn about new digital tools for humanities research and build your own virtual workspace for viewing books and manuscripts from libraries around the world in this short talk and workshop.

Since 2012, the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) has been enabling scholars to view, annotate and remix digitized images. The Bodleian has been in the vanguard of these developments, first with Digital.Bodleian, our IIIF-compatible digitized special collections website, and now with the Digital Manuscripts Toolkit, which will open up IIIF technology to humanities researchers with a set of easy-to-use tools. In this workshop, you will learn about the basic principles of IIIF, see the technology in action at the Bodleian and other institutions, and find out how to use free tools such as Mirador and the Universal Viewer in your own research. You will also have the opportunity to get involved in the development and testing of the Digital Manuscripts Toolkit.

Please bring your own laptops for the hands-on portion of this event.
