Many institutions which intend to use IIIF to disseminate content are also interested in using Fedora to manage that content. Because Fedora and IIIF are built on the principles of linked data, IIIF data models and services can be connected to content stored in Fedora. The API Extension Architecture (API-X), https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/FF/Design+-+API+Extension+Architecture, is a framework for extending the native functionality of Fedora which could be used to integrate Fedora and IIIF. Since API-X is HTTP middleware, API-X is decoupled from the implementation details of Fedora. API-X can be used to add behaviors to Fedora objects as well as modify how Fedora objects are expressed. This talk will describe the basic concepts of API-X, how to leverage API-X to bind services to linked data repository objects, and integration patterns that allow one to expose and discover IIIF services on repository objects.
