LIGHTNING TALK: Ten Thousand Rooms and More - IIIF for Research Communities (Room 5)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

For a couple years now, two research projects at Yale University in digital humanities have adopted IIIF in their efforts to manage their workflows, showcase the work, and enable collaboration among researchers. Ten Thousand Rooms is a community-oriented project for studying pre-modern Chinese literary texts, and Life of the Buddha is about presentation of annotated mural paintings from a monastry in Tibet.

Our software development is driven mainly by use cases of annotations which were rather unique in the early stages of the projects but now it seems more widely shared in the research community. While the system has many components in the background, the core user experience (UX) is built around Mirador.

We have met and solved quite a few interesting challenges in extending and embedding Mirador in our application, which we will showcase in the lightning talk and the demo session.
