Metadata via IIIF Presentation API

The institutions often prefer to implement a basic export of the metadata required for the IIIF Presentation API on their existing websites or online catalogs.

The image services provided by IIIFHosting can be easily referenced from the exported Manifest as a link. Manifest is a textual document with a title, author, document structure, copyright information and link to an image service. It should be available on a permanent URL of the institution, in the JSON format.

Omeka IIIF modules

For serving the IIIF Presentation API we recommend an open-source system Omeka S. The free publication system designed to create websites for GLAM collections is easy to install on a standard web hosting. It comes with a web interface for cataloging, many visual templates, and modules extending the functionality further. Via native Linked Open Data (LOD) export - your content will be available for the semantic web.

Integration with IIIF is available as a module - and perfectly integrates with above-mentioned services. We would be glad to assist you.
