IIIF Authentication API: access control and sustainability of open digital library projects

416 views

Published on

Presented at Open Repository 2018, Bozeman, Montana

As said in the IIIF Authentication API Documentation, “Open access to content is desirable, but internal policies, legal regulations, business models, and other constraints can require users to authenticate and be authorized to interact with some resources”. In this context IIIF Authentication API has been developed to start an interaction with an access control system to acquire the credentials needed to see restricted content. The proposed presentation will illustrate how we implemented the Authentication API within our IIIF add-on module for DSpace and moreover how it can interact not only with access control systems but also with e-commerce modules. This is very important because, mainly in the cultural heritage domain, the selling of digitized documents for research purposes is one of the few ways for institutions to maintain and increase the content of their Digital Library beyond grants. Therefore, 4Science developed an e-commerce add-on module for DSpace, based on the open source plug-in for Wordpress, Woocommerce, also interoperable with the IIIF Authentication API.
