In this Lightning Talk, I will demonstrate the Broken Books application, a Mirador-based model for reconstructing dismembered medieval manuscripts. The application pulls IIIF-compliant images from multiple servers into the shared canvas when called for, presenting them in the correct order with associated meta-data. Broken Books was developed by Debra Cashion and Bryan Habersberger at St. Louis University, and my work is serving as a test-case.
