Biblissima — Bibliotheca bibliothecarum novissima — is a French digital humanities project which aims to create a federated access point for over 40 digital scientific resources about medieval and Renaissance manuscripts and early printed books. The Biblissima portal brings together data from various databases and digital editions, alongside a large number of digital facsimiles from different image repositories. This talk will give a live demo of the latest version of the portal (the first version is expected to be released in March 2017), with the aim of showing how it leverages IIIF to provide users a better viewing experience relying on a customized Mirador workspace (with session storage and permalink system). It will also demonstrate how the portal acts as a major discovery environment for IIIF manifests of manuscripts and early printed books in Europe and beyond. To conclude, it will outline future plans for the development of the portal.
