This workshop provides an introduction to Mirador, a new tool for comparing and analysing large images and image collections from multiple institutions. It will also introduce the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF), a new technical standard that underpins tools like Mirador. The session covers IIIF and research materials available through this standard, and how to use Mirador to import, collect, and analyse these new collections across repositories. If time permits, we will also cover how Mirador can be used to share comparisons, materials, and annotations over the web. Some familiarity with HTML and web publishing may be helpful, but is not required.
This workshop is offered by Stanford Libraries' Center for Interdisciplinary Research as part of its mission to provide training in technical academic research practices and applied research methods. It is co-hosted with the Stanford Libraries' Digital Library Systems and Services.
