Last week, we released Diva.js 4.0 (Document Image Viewer with AJAX), a new version of our open-source document image viewer. Evan Magoni is the lead developer on Diva in our lab here at McGill, and we’re excited to share what he’s been working on. Using Diva on their own websites, libraries, archives, and museums can present high-resolution document page images in a user-friendly interface that has been optimized for speed and flexibility.
Some highlights of version 4.0 include:
support for the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF). Supporting this standardized format makes Diva part of the larger movement to enhance and promote sharing of archival image collections.
Several demos are available at http://ddmal.github.io/diva.js/try/
