In an effort to provide users with a new way to browse and explore archival collections, the Getty Research Institute is building a prototype for a Digital Archival Navigation Application (DANA) that utilizes IIIF.  However, because the majority of our collections are only partially digitized, and because of the idiosyncratic way that our digital items are created and deposited into our preservation system, creating IIIF presentation documents has proved to be a worthy challenge.  After much discussion, we arrived at a solution for the prototype that involved merging metadata from EAD (in ArchivesSpace) and METS (in Rosetta) to generate IIIF collection and manifest documents representing the Harald Szeemann papers.  This complex solution, which already makes heavy use of IIIF ranges, also opens up the possibility of allowing users to split existing digital objects, which are sometimes comprised of thousands of images, into more granular objects by allowing them to create additional ranges within DANA.  This presentation will provide a detailed look at both the problem and the solution and invite feedback from the community.
