Limited Capacity filling up

The J. Paul Getty Trust – including the J. Paul Getty Museum and Getty Research Institute – has recently incorporated support for IIIF into our existing collection information systems. We began by enabling support for the Presentation API within our collection database abstraction layer, and developed a complete Level 0 Image API implementation as a layer on top of our existing DZI tilesets. No new derivatives were needed, just a translation layer written in the course of a single afternoon. Efforts are now underway to incorporate dynamic image generation for the more sophisticated features of a full level 2 implementation. Additionally, a set of experimental IIIF-related features have been added to our collection search indexes and search user interfaces in aid of an institution-wide offering that enables users to view groups of selected search results within any IIIF compatible viewer. Our development efforts provided opportunities to gain insight regarding the implementation of IIIF in the context of a large, cross-institutional information infrastructure. These integrations can serve as a trail-blazer for other cultural heritage organizations looking to engage with large collections of object records and media assets. This presentation will provide an engaging demonstration of the ease of getting started with IIIF, the lessons learnt during implementation, suggestions for improvements to the IIIF documentation, and our general findings and experiences of coming at the problem from the common museum scenario of a vendor provided collection management system coupled with a bespoke existing web interface.
