Following the IIIF standard, image can be displayed individually or they can be organised into curated groups of images, and formatted as IIIF Manifests. In turn Manifests can then also be grouped together to form groups of groups of images know as IIIF Collections. IIIF Manifests are relatively easy to explore, in IIIF compliant viewers, but as IIIF Collections grow in complexity they can often be harder for users to explore. This system was developed as a demonstration of a alternative way of presenting and exploring IIIF Collections. It works by automatically converting the information stored in the IIIF Collections into more user friendly webpages and the images listed within the IIIF Manifests are presented directly with the IIIF compliant viewer Mirador.
In addition, when the presented images directly relate to are described in an available PDF, the PDF will also be displayed next to the images.
This system works well with the example National Gallery IIIF collection listed below, however it is being further developed to make it easy to test with any standard IIIF V3 Collection.
