We are thrilled to announce our participation in the prestigious 2023 International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) conference, hosted by the esteemed University of Naples Federico II and the IIIF Consortium from June 5th to 8th. This remarkable international event brings together a diverse audience of libraries, museums, cultural heritage institutions, software companies, and organizations working with digital images and audiovisual materials.

As a testament to our dedication to the IIIF Community and Consortium, 4Science proudly stands as one of the Gold Sponsors. Our commitment dates back to 2017, when we integrated IIIF with the groundbreaking DSpace-GLAM platform for the first time.

Join us on June 6th, as we present our invaluable contribution during the workshop session titled “IIIF and DSpace 7: integrating tools for exploring Digital Cultural Heritage.” This immersive 2-hour workshop is designed specifically for librarians, archivists, historians, archaeologists, researchers, and visionaries seeking to build their own digital libraries using DSpace 7 and IIIF.

Experience the seamless integration of IIIF within DSpace, from both the back-end and front-end perspectives. Leveraging our significant contributions to the development of DSpace 7, we have collaborated closely with the community to seamlessly integrate comprehensive IIIF support into the official DSpace codebase. Now, the DSpace REST API empowers users with the robust capabilities of the IIIF Presentation API, IIIF Image API, and IIIF Search API.

But that’s just the beginning of our journey. Delve into the realm of new digital relationships within DSpace-GLAM, our feature-rich platform built on DSpace 7. During the workshop, we will dissect and share our proven approach and standard workflows for effective cultural heritage document management. From image insertion to optimizing accessibility through the dynamic Mirador Image Viewer, we will explore cutting-edge processes such as OCR text extraction and PDF visualization. Moreover, we will unveil the secrets of establishing meaningful connections between digital objects and other entities, building a captivating network of relationships waiting to be explored through powerful network graphs.

At 4Science, we believe in pushing the boundaries of Digital Libraries. With the integration of IIIF and DSpace 7, coupled with our latest feature enhancements, we transcend traditional limitations. This empowers you to weave new narratives, harnessing the power of interdisciplinary collaboration and the seamless coexistence of diverse domains.

Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to join us at the forefront of digital innovation. Expand your horizons, ignite your imagination, and explore the limitless possibilities of Digital Cultural Heritage.

Secure your spot now and embark on a transformative journey with 4Science at the IIIF Conference in Naples!
