Demo Session: Creating a Knowledge Graph using IIIF (Room 1)

Very few people read a book cover-to-cover. And very seldom is every bit of information we care about contained within a single book. What we want is the ability to jump around, to highlight important bits of knowledge, and create links between them. The world wide web does this through hypertext links. This demo will show how IIIF annotations may be used to create "hyperimage links" which allow us to seamlessly summon and navigate between multiple IIIF manifests. Several experimental APIs and code snippets will be shared so others can participate.
