Opportunities Are Endless

We need to lower barriers for our scholars to picture, pursue, and challenge what's possible with image-based research and teaching.

Image-Based Research with IIIF

  • We Need to Stop Reinventing the Wheel
  • Researchers are spending their time & grants on bespoke, basic, and expensive image infrastructures
  • Resources would be better spent on the inventive parts of their research
  • Using IIIF helps us build more flexible and adaptable solutions
  • Opportunity to support humanities "close reading" and ML/AI batch analysis at the same time
