The project “Simple Access to Cultural Heritage Assets” (SACHA) is a cooperation project between the Austrian National Library and the Austrian Academy of Sciences and a contribution to the European digital infrastructure for the arts and humanities DARIAH. The aim of SACHA is to improve access to culturally relevant data, such as the digitized historical book collection of the Austrian National Library for scientific use. This corpus contains about 450.000 items and is still increasing. SACHA provides an implemented IIIF Interface allowing both human users and automated tools to access the digitized material. Source images in JPEG2000 format are streamed with the IIIFServer (IIPImage) and an implementation of the IIIF Presentation API provides the metadata and the full text. Users can access IIIF manifests that are generated automatically from the library catalogue. Furthermore, users can create IIIF collections dynamically by means of a list of determined identifiers (barcodes) or via the resultset of a fulltext search. The challenge for creating dynamic collections with regard to the size of collections and the query duration is the huge search index resulting from the corpus of mass digitization. SACHA hosts instances of Mirador and Universal Viewer to easily view the manifests and the collections. By offering both viewers the users are given the possibility to decide which viewer fits their needs best according to their research task. The next steps will be the implementation of user authentication and authorization.
The focus of the demo is to share the technical aspects of the SACHA IIIF implementation and to gather feedback from the developer community as well as from researchers for current and future features.
