Hands-on session led by Kōko Howell, Digital Content Lead/Web Archive Curator, for the Japan Disasters Archives at the Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies
Kiyonori Nagasaki of the International Institute for Digital Humanities and Satoru Nakamura of the Information Technology Center of Tokyo University led a day-long workshop on the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF). The hands-on sessions were integrated throughout the presentation.
Professors Nagasaki and Nakamura also demonstrated how IIIF might be applied in specific projects that participants had brought to the workshop. Participants were expected to plan and create their own small-scale projects, and there will be follow-up after the workshop to offer support and assess progress.
