Uploading Multiple IIIF Media Images in 1 Item

Hello everyone, I’m a new Omeka S user – also new to the concept of IIIF, so please forgive my ignorance. I’ve been able to manage pretty well so far using other forum posts and some basic searches, but after hours of searching, I am getting nowhere on this particular issue.

I’m trying to upload two IIIF images to a single Omeka Item. I was able to successfully upload a single IIIF image to another item using the “IIIF Image” option under “Add Media”, however the item I am working on now (a letter) is distributed over 2 separate images. I am guessing that I will need to utilize the “IIIF Presentation” option for multiple images, however the images I am wanting to add to the item are externally hosted and exist on separate manifests.

What options do I have for making this happen? I tried adding both images separately through the “IIIF Image” option, but that displayed two viewers on the item page which is not ideal. Would a module like Mirador Viewer or Universal Viewer help? The only modules I currently have installed are Value Suggest and Custom Vocab.

Thank you!


I’m not sure how UniversalViewer or Mirador would behave in this case, but you can try OctopusViewer which will display only one viewer for all media of an item. I am the original developer of this module, so feel free to ask me anything about it.

Thank you @julian.maurice ! I will take a look into OctopusViewer.
