Description

The International Image Interoperability Framework enables re-use of images of medieval content from libraries and museums around the world. While this has been a domain for specialists for several years, the amount of content and the number of user-friendly tools available has reached a point where it is now easier to use a wealth of materials in classroom presentations, student projects, and online supplementary materials. This roundtable invites participants to share examples of, and approaches to, using interoperable medieval materials in practice. Examples include reconstructing dispersed manuscripts, building teaching collections, engaging with transcription and detailed annotation, comparative studies across multiple repositories, and more.

The discussion will focus on practical and useful models to engage students in broader questions through digital methods, the pleasures and pitfalls of interoperability, publishing and preserving student or class projects, and overcoming barriers to teaching with IIIF in institutions of all sizes.
