At the May 2016 IIIF conference, Harvard presented on IIIF as an Enabler to Interoperability within a Single Institution. Since that time, Harvard has implemented a University-wide IIIF/Mirador Working Group that guides and coordinates IIIF/Mirador-related efforts across the University. Pulling together the interests of the Harvard Library, Academic Computing, HarvardX, the Harvard University Art Museums and faculty users, the working group has developed a multi-year roadmap for leveraging IIIF at Harvard, and for recommending investments in Mirador and IIIF development. Harvard has begun working on a scholarly workspace that would enable our users to organize their own images alongside IIIF images and digital objects from other universities, libraries, museums, and archives. In addition, this scholarly workspace would enable collaboration, such as through annotation, on these resources between colleagues, faculty and students, etc. This lightning talk will present Harvard’s roadmap and demonstrate the value of coordinating IIIF plans to optimize impact for scholarly stakeholders.
