In this talk we want to present the IIIF workflow at the Bavarian State Library, which will be used to make over a million objects available via IIIF (estimated completion time is 2018). We are going to cover the following points: What kind of data does the workflow build upon? How do we generate IIIF Manifests? How do we deliver our IIIF data? How do we ensure acceptable performance? What are the main issues we have been and still are facing? What were the main lessons learned? What's in the pipeline for the future? Since much of the IIIF code we have written is open sourced on GitHub, we will refer to the corresponding projects where appropriate. The aim of the talk is to give an end-to-end example of what a IIIF workflow at a large library can look like, mainly from a technical perspective. It is our impression that currently most technical knowledge about developing real-world IIIF workflows is non-public. We hope to partially close this gap with our walkthrough and to encourage discussions about best practices for IIIF backends (as well as learn a thing or two from questions and criticisms from the audience!)
