The subtitle of this course is “How to set up and use your own Goobi instance to digitize and publish your objects via IIIF in less than 30 minutes” which says it all. The course explains how the Goobi software suite (Goobi workflow and Goobi viewer) is used to manage small and even big digitization projects. Attendees learn how to install the Goobi-to-go environment on their own computers and adapt the software to customize workflows, including tasks for automatic jobs, validation, conversion, and metadata enrichment. Attendees also learn how processed digitized objects can be ingested automatically into a Fedora repository and how to publish the results within the Goobi viewer as a digital library system based on automatically generated METS files and IIIF Presentation Manifests.
Participants must bring their own laptops (Windows, Mac, or Linux) for this hands-on session. Please make sure that your computer has Java 8 installed to be able to use Goobi. If needed, meet with instructors prior to the class to prepare your computer.
