IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) is a protocol for standardized image retrieval created by a community of the world's leading research libraries, major national libraries, and not-for-profit image repositories. A growing community of the world’s leading research libraries and image repositories have embarked on an effort to collaboratively produce an interoperable technology and community framework for image delivery. IIIF manifests from the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library can be accessed at https://iiif.library.utoronto.ca/presentation/v2/collections/fisher:root.
This site also makes use of Mirador, a configurable image viewer that enables image annotation and comparison of images from repositories dispersed around the world. Mirador has been optimized to display resources from repositories that support the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) API's. Learn more about using the Mirador viewer on this site.
