I would like to confirm if the Dataverse is International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) compatibile?

If not, are there plans to make it IIIF compatible?

Hi Shu Wen, 

I'm not very familiar with the IIIF standard, but I don't believe we're in compliance with it. This isn't something that we have plans to work on. 

If someone in the community is more knowledgeable and/or has interest in working on this compatibility, please feel free to join the discussion!

Hello Shu Wen:

Our UBC discovery repository - Open Collections - is IIIF compliant and we are feeding Dataverse sets there for enhanced data discovery. Happy to be of help!

we have experience in the IIIF standards. In short: they are a set of
API specification that improve images interoperability allowing reuse
of the content from other web sites / system without loss of

It will make absolute sense to provide an integration with an image
server IIIF compliant that read the images directly from Dataverse.
We have worked with Cantaloupe and Digilib and created a similar
extension for DSpace to allow such integration, see:

The scope of the development could be more or less broad, the basis
could be to provide a viewer IIIF compliant for each single images in a
dataset, a further step could be to provide a IIIF presentation API
manifest to expose the full dataset or also a large dataverse (as a
IIIF collection). Support for terms of usage can be added using the
IIIF Authentication API.

We will be happy to work with any Institution that want to fund a
similar development with the goal to release it open source to the
Dataverse community.
