Adding IIIF Image Documents
In addition to adding primary image documents from your computer and the web, you can also add primary image documents via consumption of images held in International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) applications, like Stanford Libraries, the British Library and the Bibliothèque nationale de France.
Adding Primary Image Documents from IIIF Applications:
  1. Click the "New Item" menu button at the top-left corner of the Table of Contents menu to open a menu of primary document options. 

  2. Click the "Image" option to open a new image document in the project workspace, and create a new document in the Table of Contents menu.

  3. Click the "Link to IIIF" option to import an image file held in an International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) application.

  4. You'll need to locate the specific image URI/ID ("/info.json") of the image you'd like to import—in the video above this is demonstrated using the IIIF manifest document of an Ebling Manuscript located at Stanford Libraries' Parker library on the Web where you can locate specific image URI's/ID's for specific folio images with the help of the browser search function (note how we had to add the "/info.json" file type ending to import to DM).

  5. You can rename the document by clicking to select the “Untitled Document” text title at the top of the document and typing a new text title.

  6. Note preview images may not always appear in the Table of Contexts depending on the specific API of the holding institution.
