Arkindex is fully compatible with IIIF and uses a IIIF server internally to give access to the images.

IIIF manifest import

You can upload IIIF manifests to Arkindex from the import page:

  • from a manifest URL, example https://iiif.harvardartmuseums.org/manifests/object/299843
  • from a local JSON file

IIIF Visualisation

All the documents and folders in Arkindex can be viewed and browsed using Mirador and Universal Viewer.

For a given folder or document, in the Actions menu,

  • choose View in Mirador or View in UV to open the current folder or document in Mirador or Universal Viewer
  • choose </> Manifest to view and download the corresponding IIIF Manifest

You can also use UV to search in the document's transcriptions.
