I’m looking for a way to display some exhibition images directly from an external IIIF image server, via an Omeka S site, without copying the images to the Omeka S server.
Does anyone know if there is a way to add images to Omeka S items from external IIIF image servers in such a way that the image file is always kept on the external server and not needing to be duplicated onto the local Omeka S server?
We seem to have missed listing this option in the end-user manual, but the tab to add media to an item allows you to input a IIIF URL. We fetch the file to make thumbnails, but we do not store the original.
(I’ll update the manual.)
Wonderful, much appreciated. Thanks also for all the hard work on developing the excellent Omeka S platform. My university library likes it very much!
