IIIF Mirador Viewer

IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) is a protocol for standardized image retrieval created by a community of the world's leading research libraries, major national libraries, and not-for-profit image repositories. A growing community of the world’s leading research libraries and image repositories have embarked on an effort to collaboratively produce an interoperable technology and community framework for image delivery.

Mirador is a configurable, extensible, and easy-to-integrate image viewer, which enables image annotation and comparison of images from repositories dispersed around the world. Mirador has been optimized to display resources from repositories that support the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) API's.

As part of the University of Toronto Libraries adoption of IIIF we are committed to changing how our users interact with our digital collections. We are excited to make a UTL manifest available from which users can access collections via IIIF. Take a look in the Mirador viewer, below, to browse digital objects, or access our IIIF manifests at
