Pinned post

Hello there! Thanks to @kfitz I got again access to my account! Please boost this message as I lost the data (and all the people who starting following me) over the past five days because of the server glitch (and sorry to the people I couldn't follow back, I will find you) :blobcatgoogly:

So I won't do another proper (have a look at my pinned toot) but some information here: I am a Candidate in at the University of Basel, doing a thesis on Linked Open Usable Data () such as , an application profile of CIDOC-CRM and . @dh

And speaking of @iiif, I created a couple of days ago an International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) list on Mastodon --> where you can download a CSV file, use the form ( if you want to be on that list.

Hello again! Here is a second on this new instance.
My name is Julien Antoine Raemy (or Juls) and I am a Candidate in at the University of Basel. My thesis is about Linked Open Usable Data () such as and that I expect to finish by January 2025. Before my PhD, I studied Library and Information Science in Geneva and even before that I used to be a bookseller. I try to keep micro-blogging professional as much as possible and I am interested in and Science and Technology Studies (). Nevertheless, I am always interested to chat other matters (such as Science Fiction, heavy metal and cats).

I've just been reminded by @JoePadfield of this nice webpage about persistent identifiers (Developing Identifiers for Heritage Collections):
- ping @arks_org

Another interesting community-based initiative is IIIF-Commons @iiif

It is an effort to create high quality, reusable software components that can be used and reused as part of a more comprehensive solutions at any given institution.

A couple of examples:

- Vault (
- Manifesto (

If you are a software developer dealing with and wants to help,:

1) IIIF Thumbnails Component, they need volunteers:
2) They have a dedicated channel on the IIIF Slack workspace (-commons)

Behold the great Presentation API 3.0 library

It is based on Pydantic, a Python library for building and validating data structures, has a couple of straightforward helper methods, for instance to create Manifests and Canvases, to import the json from an existing IIIF Manifest or to assist with things such as applying a default language to labels.

For descriptive metadata or requiredStatements, KeyValueString constructions can be leveraged.

Documentation is not done yet, but they (mostly @digitaldogsbody is working on it)

We are looking to generally increase the participation in the TSG next year, and aiming for a draft update of the charter to set out the plan for 2.1/3.0 around March.

If you want to get more directly involved before that, we have a list of issues on Github here:

These are current features/use-cases under consideration (n.b. not a complete/final list) and each one should have a comment where you can "vote" thumbs up or down to its inclusion.

The #IIIF meeting is clarifying for me what I want in #Zotero: a "IIIF manifest" field to hold the URI of the manifest; code in translators to detect manifest links when you save an item (maybe based on DetektIIIF) and populate the field; and a "View IIIF" button in the green-arrow dropdown list of links, which opens the manifest in an external instance of Mirador or UV or whatever (maybe a preference you can set). But I checked, and there are 0 issues in the Zotero repo for IIIF.

Printing manifests with PDIIIF presented by Chip Goines and @jbaiter at the @iiif Online Meeting. And it is released now! What a neat tool that is able to generate PDFs from any browsers, largely independent from resource providers.

Tom Crane: treating Canvas as placeholders for non-IIIF objects (or rather data that can't be rendered yet). @iiif for everything:

Content Search API 3.0 Roadmap

1) Increase participation in Content Technical Specification Group (Group)

2) Next steps: review of features and issues in GitHub (, survey on use, community discussion and share report on findings and draft an updated Content Search TSG Charter by early March 2023 --> Keep in touch:

Why Content Search 2.0 (apart the alignment to Presentation API 3.0)?
- Adoption of JSON-LD 1.1
- Adoption of the W3C Web Annotation Data Model (WADM)
- Property Naming and Semantics Changes such as 'resources' instead of 'items' and deprecation of "hits" structure in favour of presenting responses as 'items'

- Some new features (contextualizing and highlighting motivations from the WADM)
- Clarifications around "embedded" and "referenced" and "declaring services" to highlight the difference between the search and the autocomplete services
- Style in terms of improved examples and some restructuration

Here is the change log:

Big news of the week: Content Search API 2.0 has been released ( It brings the API into alignment with the IIIF Presentation API 3.0 and introduces breaking changes.

Content Search API 3.0 will build on 2.0 to add additional functionalities (including A/V capabilities). The work will start early next year. @iiif

All the sessions of the Online Meeting are/will be recorded. They will be uploaded on the IIIF YouTube Channel:
