Event Invitation: Shared Images of Global Cultural Heritage (London,
October 20, 2014)
Following from last week's announcement regarding IIIF 2.0 specifications,
you are cordially invited to a unique one day event in London, hosted by
the *International Image Interoperability Framework* community (
http://iiif.io/), about the use of images in and across Cultural Heritage
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 senior leaders, 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. This is the only such event planned, so don't miss it!
The event will be held at the British Library Conference Centre on Monday
October 20, 2014.
