IIIF is an emerging international standard for accessing digitized images and the information needed to display, organize, and present them. Of the 4 IIIF APIs (Image, Presentation, Authentication, and Search), the Image and Presentation APIs are in their 2.x phase of development and are being adopted into production environments by various types of organizations including universities, consortium, and private businesses. To support the IIIF APIs open-source software applications are being developed to consume and use IIIF data. These range from basic image viewers to more complex applications that take advantage of the image organization and presentation components of the IIIF Presentation API. This session will provide a brief overview of the IIIF APIs and focus on how organizations have integrated the standards into their production systems. We will help demystify the complexities of the APIs by sharing our experiences in working with them. In addition to exploring the technical aspects of the IIIF APIs, we will also highlight and discuss useful open-source tools we have used to make the adoption of IIIF easier. Attendees of this session will leave not only understanding what IIIF is and why it is important but more importantly they will leave with an understanding of what is required to get working with the IIIF APIs.
