Getting Started with Comparing and Annotating Digital Images
October 14, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Thursday, October 14, 2021 from 12-2pm
Scholarship of visual materials requires close looking and comparison across works. Digitization efforts across the world have allowed for many digital facsimiles of these materials to be made available online. For scholarship, digital viewers are extremely valuable to presenting high-resolution imaging, which allows for close examination of materials. Interoperability has become crucial for institutions for contrasting objects from different collections. Increasing stability in digital visual scholarship means working from authority files from museums, libraries, and archives — institutions are committed to long term preservation and standards.
This workshop will introduce participants to Mirador, an “open-source, web based, multi-window image viewing platform with the ability to zoom, display, compare and annotate images from around the world.” Leveraging the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF), the Mirador web-viewer allows users to compare and annotate images and documents. Participants will learn how to install a local instance of Mirador, find Mirador-friendly content and resources, make narratives with annotations, and complete side-by-side transcriptions.
All levels are welcome.
