IIIF has opened the gateway for a powerful distributed and networked collaboration between research groups and cultural heritage institutions. As libraries make more and more image data available to scholars, research groups are creating more and more data that can enrich the image viewing environment. IIIF offers the potential for seamlessly integrating these related data sets. However, there are technical and social challenges to realizing this potential. This presentation would be a follow up on last year’s discussion of data sharing via webmention (http://lombardpress.org/2016/04/16/iiif-webmentions/). The new development presented here would offer the community evidence and concrete examples of a growing interest in this kind of automated data sharing. Participants: SCTA Data Sharing with Harvard Manuscripts from Chip Goins (Harvard) and Sharing SCTA and Princeton Geniza data with Penn and Cambridge: a report from the Penn, Princeton, Cambridge meeting held in March 2017 from Jeffrey C. Witt (Loyola University Maryland). The two presentations would offer examples and reports on active attempts to facilitate this kind collaboration between scholars and libraries, as well as reflections on some of the institutional challenges facing this kind of data sharing.
