    Colleagues,

    The next IIIF Archives Community Group call will be on Tuesday, 18 January 2022 at 9 AM PST / 12 PM EST / 17:00 UTC / 18:00 CET.

    Dorothy Berry (Houghton Library, Harvard University) will be presenting on Slavery, Abolition, Emancipation, and Freedom: Primary Sources at Houghton Library (SAEF), a digital collections and digitization project focused on increasing representation of African American history in Houghton's digital collections. Her presentation will include information on how the SAEF project uses  IIIF to provide access and contextualize these materials. The presentation will focus on the use of open IIIF tools to enhance accessibility across broad collections.

    In addition, we'll introduce our new co-chair, Alison Harvey (Cardiff University), and have time for announcements.

    As always, we're looking for potential demos or presentations related to IIIF and archives of 10-15 minutes each. Please don't hesitate to let us know should you be interested and willing to present or demo something on this or a future call.

    About the IIIF Archives Community Group: The IIIF Archives Community Group (https://iiif.io/community/groups/archives/) focuses on setting best practices for using IIIF with archival material, and collaborates internationally regarding promotion and demonstration of use, exploration of possibilities and documentation of use cases and requirements, and communication between the IIIF community and allied professional communities.
     
    About IIIF: The International Image Interoperability Framework (http://iiif.io), or IIIF, represents an effort by a growing community of LAMs and image repositories to collaboratively produce an interoperable technology and community framework for image delivery of materials in any format (including photographs, digitized manuscripts and archival materials, born-digital records, audio/video, and more) in standards-compliant ways that encourage their adaptability and reuse across a variety of contexts. Enabling access to archival materials through IIIF offers exciting opportunities for collaborative cross-institution storytelling, crowdsourcing, display of hierarchically described digital archival collections, and even enabling researchers to recreate dispersed collections and create new collections based on specific research questions.

    On behalf of the chairs,
    Mark
