Biblissima's Scientific Advisory Board
Biblissima's Scientific Advisory Board, a Digital Humanities "think tank", brings together experts from Europe and abroad (University of Stanford) and is a first step in expanding the project's network internationally.
The IIIF Initiative for Image Interoperability
Biblissima is an active participant in the IIIF international initiative (International Image Interoperability Framework), led by Stanford University. An increasing number of scientific and cultural heritage institutions around the world are joining this initiative (universities, national and other major libraries, national and international projects, etc. — see http://iiif.io/community.html). The Biblissima Team is involved in the working groups that are drawing up the IIIF specifications (API) and is also coordinating the technical implementation of these standards at Biblissima's partner institutions, as part of the Observatory's work on image repositories.
The DARIAH European Network
In 2015, Biblissima will contribute several of its projects to the DARIAH European Network (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities):
- BaOBab Toolkit
- Biblissima Thesaurus
- XML-TEI Editor for old library inventories
- Summer school "Saint Bertin, Cultural Centre from the 7th to 18th Centuries: Constitution, Preservation, Diffusion, Use of Knowledge"
