About IIIF

Mmmonk is based on the technical innovation of IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework). Learn more about what IIIF is, how it can be useful in education, communication and research, and how we used IIIF for this project.

Examples of code ready for import in Mirador

We created four separate collages in Mirador and pasted the code onto this page. Import the code back into Mirador and start playing with our collages!

End-users' feedback for IIIF

Over 300 people have participated in the Mmmonk IIIF Workshop. On this page, we have gathered and condensed their feedback on the design and functionalities of IIIF applications so it can be used to improve IIIF UX.

Create a virtual tour with our free online Exhibit tool

We have collaborated with Mnemoscene to create a user-friendly, free, online editing tool to create virtual tours or "guided viewings" specifically adapted for books. We expanded the existing tool to allow for the presentation of complex materials and the insertion of YouTube videos.
