- Support Tom Crane This would allow linking to Wikidata's own IIIF representations of works, as well as those provided by other institutions. Often many digital representations of a complex object will be available from different providers (e.g., two different national libraries for a work).
Further examples of possible property values:
Wikimedia commons has its own-hi res image of this painting, so could publish its own manifest (proof of concept | in viewer), AND link to a manifest for this painting somewhere else (or many known manifests, each of which may give access to further and different annotation content for API consumers to have a look at).
Wikimedia is unlikely or unable to publish a full digital representation of _Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica_. But it could link out to digital representations, such as https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/PR-ADV-B-00039-00001/1 (which has an IIIF Manifest that could be directly linked). This raises further questions though - the concept of Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica doesn't have a 1:1 relationship to digital representations; there could be many digital representations in IIIF space, and they have different sorts of relationship - for example, here's the manuscript: https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-ROYALSOCIETY-00069/7 -- – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tom Crane (talk • contribs) at 09:52, 10 November 2018 (UTC).
