Brainstorming Questions from Terry Brady
- Would a IIIF server pull resources from DSpace, or does the server provide an alternative view of a DSpace item?
- Can a IIIF manifest be used to express relationships between bitstreams? If so, are all of those bitstreams part of one item?
- I understand that a IIIF server can work with dynamically generated tiles and pre-generated tiles. I assume that a DSpace integration would need to work with either option.
- We would be interested in providing a book reader view through IIIF.
- I presume that we would continue to offer a PDF bitstream for download AND we would generate image tiles from the source TIF files.
- We would also be interested in using the IIIF manifest to give context to a set of bitstreams within an item
User Story Suggestions from Ben Brumfield
From the perspective of a IIIF client trying to reuse material on a DSpace repository, here are the minimum features needed to work
IIIF Presentation API
- A IIIF client sees a top-level collection for the DSpace installation listing communities. Example: DSpace site mapped to IIIF collection document
- An IIIF client sees a collection manifest listing sub collections
- An IIIF client sees a sub-collection collection manifest listing items as IIIF manifest links
- An IIIF client sees a manifest corresponding to an item (TODO real world item with example manifest containing metadata, labels, seeAlso services, and canvases)
IIIF Image API
- A IIIF client sees available image parameters at by calling info.json on the image service for a single page
- A IIIF client can display a single page image at Level 0 Compliance
