CFPR Seminar: Simple-Site – Practical applications of IIIF as a building block towards a digital National Collection (22 July 2020)
For the seminar this week, we’re welcoming Joseph Padfield from the National Gallery to discuss the digital future of collections, for both academic and public consumption, and the prospect of an international standard for sharing high quality images. If you want a sneak peek, you can take a look here and click through some of the examples – the level of detail is astonishing, so make sure you zoom right in and take a look at the brush strokes.

Joseph Padfield is a conservation scientist at the National Gallery with interests in colour science, image processing, conservation documentation, web development, and how lighting affects these images. Joseph will be discussing with us the use of IIIF, a platform for the digital viewing and sharing of image-based objects, in building simple and sharable sites and workspaces for both academic and public use.
