Searching Annotations

In the last session we looked at downloading annotations so they could be linked to a manifest. In this session we are going to look at adding a Search service to the manifest so that the annotations you created can be searched using a IIIF Viewer. The procedure to achieve this is:

  • Find the SAS IIIF Search URL
  • Add a link to the Search service in your manifest
  • Test with a IIIF Viewer

Step 1: Find the IIIF Search URL

If you navigate to your collections page either by clicking on the Home link or by navigating to:

https://dev.gdmrdigital.com/collections.xhtml

On the collections page click "Browse Annotations":

and then you will be taken to the Manifest page. Now select the Configure IIIF Search link highlighted below.

The IIIF search page gives details on how to add a link to the search service. Copy the URL circled in Red in the image below:

Now open up your Manifest in Atom and it should look like this:

Now add the following JSON to the manifest after the label:

"service": {
    "profile": "http://iiif.io/api/search/0/search",
    "@id": "SEARCH_ID",
    "@context": "http://iiif.io/api/search/0/context.json"
},

Now replace the SEARCH_ID with the URL you copied earlier. In my example it would look like:

Step 3: Test with a IIIF Viewer

Test your manifest with the Universal Viewer to see if has worked.
