Sharing Images of Global Cultural Heritage

Share

The International Image Interoperability Framework community is hosting a one day information sharing event at the British Library on Monday 20th  October 2014 about the use of images in and across Cultural Heritage institutions.

The day will focus on how museums, galleries, libraries and archives, or any online image service, can take advantage of a powerful technical framework for interoperability between image repositories.   This event will be valuable for organizational decision makers, repository and collection managers, software engineers, and anyone interested in exploring the wide range of use cases that are seamlessly enabled by the framework.

Attendance is free, and widespread dissemination of the event is encouraged. To register, just go to:  http://bit.ly/iiiflondon2014

There will be many opportunities for discussion, questions and networking throughout the day with new and existing partners including multiple national libraries, top tier research institutions, commercial providers and major aggregators.
