Europeana & IIIF - what we have been doing with IIIF and why

Slides supporting my presentation at the IIIF Outreach event at the Rijksmuseum, October 18 2016. The presentation covered why we at Europeana have chose to join the IIIF community and adopt the protocol in our own stack. It includes examples of what we have developed and also what we have in the development pipeline.

Europeana & IIIF - what we have been doing with IIIF and why

  1. 1. Europeana & IIIFWhat have wee been doing with IIIF and why? David Haskiya | IIIF Outreach - Amsterdam 2016 Danse de trois faunes et trois bacchantes, Hieronymus Hopfer, Bibliothèque municipale de Lyon, Public Domain
  2. 2. What and who is Europeana? • We’re a non-profit foundation - idealists and true believers • A network of like-minded heritage and technology professionals • An open data platform with many services and drawing on the collections of nearly 4000 European GLAMs • Europeana Collections, Europeana APIs The GLAMwiki toolset CC BY-SA “We want to build on Europe’s rich heritage and make it easier for people to use, whether for work, for learning or just for fun! ”
  3. 3. Outline of my talk • Why do we support IIIF? • How do we support IIIF? • Community, Data model (EDM), Display, Distribution • Ongoing and future development of interest • Improved display/viewer • Shared (IIIF) Image Service Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA

  5. 5. What our users say • Immediate access to full and high-res imagery and multi-page documents is something all users want (whether casual or professional) • Some users have specific needs and pain points • Designers looking for visual inspiration • Art historians looking closely, so closely, at a specific work of art, seeing the shape of the brush strokes, the crackelations of the canvas • Historically Europeana has been very metadata centric. Storing and serving digital media, on behalf of partners, is a major step towards an updated value proposition to partners and users both. Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA

  7. 7. Why support IIIF? “ We want to build on Europe’s rich heritage and make it easier for people to use, whether for work, for learning or just for fun.” • Supporting IIIF will help in fulfilling the mission. • We believe that for all GLAMs who have missions relating to public access and facilitating research IIIF will also support their mission fulfilment. When in doubt check your mission! Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA
  8. 8. How will do we support IIIF? Netherlands, CC BY-SA Circus Museum Anonymous Cirque de Moscou
  9. 9. Community • We’re happy and proud to have joined the IIIF community as a founding member! • Within the community we are especially engaged in the Newspapers special interest group and in prototyping using IIIF in web discovery and metadata harvesting • And we support the idea to try to extend IIIF to other types of media, esp. audio-visual, sometimes called IxIF Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA
  10. 10. Data model and harvesting • We have updated our Europeana Data Model mapping guidelines to include instructions on how to provide IIIF images and manifests (PDF) as part of an EDM WebResource representation • We have harvested and mapped two datasets - University of Heidelberg and e-Codices, to include their IIIF manifests in the data they provide to us • We also have a couple of partners whose we IIIF-resources we display via a bit of a workaround, e.g. Gallica/BNF. • Get in touch with out Data Partner Services team if you have IIIF-resources and want them displayed in Europeana! • Let’s take a look at them and also our display! Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA
  11. 11. Display & Distribution • Our first viewer implementation in Europeana Collections is deliberately simple • Records with IIIF images and manifests provided to us in the metadata are retrievable via the Europeana REST-API allowing also 3rd-party developers to display IIIF resources via the Europeana API Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA
  12. 12. Ongoing and future development? Crazed Farmers during the performance at Klub Gromka, Janez Gerčar, Culture.si, CC-BY-ND
  13. 13. Improved display • Our viewer implementation is deliberately basic. • UX research is needed before we go more ambitious. Simple is also a good thing! If we add power and complexity we need to know it’s for a good reason. • But we have some ideas based on our experience so far: • Better support for multi-page documents e.g. books and other texts • Clearer pagination esp. in full-screen mode • Support embedding of the viewer outside of Europeana (given certain copyright criteria). Also to support increased use of the viewer on our own sites, embedded, in virtual exhibitions and other Europeana web pages Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA

  15. 15. A small to medium GLAM experience “We scanned our maps in really high-quality. We knew that was the only way to do it, if we hadn’t we’d have to rescan those same maps all over again a couple of years from now. The problem is that we can’t make those high-resolution maps available in a good way on our website. They take ages to load and sometimes don’t load at all while at the same time overloading our server. We looked into developing a zoomable image service but the technical difficulties and thus the cost was too high. So now we have the high quality maps but can’t offer them to our users in they way they would wish.” Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA
  16. 16. Shared image service • We have set up a IIIF compatible image server as part of and for the Europeana Newspapers project. • But, we have thousands of other data partners with image collections. Should they all individually develop an IIIF-server? Some can and will. But for most it’s beyond their technical or financial capabilities. • So we are developing a “Shared Image Service”, IIIF compatible, for use by all Europeana data partners who want to support IIIF, but don’t have the means to do so themselves. Let me know if you’d like to alpha test! Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA

  19. 19. Takeaways • Why does Europeana want to support IIIF? • Because it helps us, and our partners, fulfill our mission(s) and it helps our users • How does Europeana support IIIF in practice? • By display, by sharing services and IIIF-resources, by joining and supporting the community • What are Europeana’s plans for further IIIF-related development? • Improved display and shareability of IIIF resources • Increased use of the IIIF-viewer in exhibitions, blog posts and other • Shared IIIF Image Service for partners Europeana & IIIF CC BY-SA
