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.
Mirador is a configurable, extensible, and easy-to-integrate image viewer, which 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.
The University of Toronto Libraries uses Mirador and IIIF to deliver digital collections. You can browse additional digital collections from across the University of Toronto in the Mirador viewer below.
