Archive Server

The Humanities Lab Archive offers secure, long-term storage of structured language data in digital form.

Metadata are publicly visible, browsable and searchable, while access to data may be restricted. With this setup, users can search for relevant data without risking circulation of sensitive data. The user may then request access, which is granted on a case by case basis, depending on restrictions. See the user info for more information.


The Lab is a node in the national consortium SWE-CLARIN, itself a part of CLARIN, a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) devoted to developing language technology (LT) and language resources as e-science.


The Humanities Lab Archive provides CMDI metadata (profiles and and is indexed by the Virtual Language Observatory (VLO) meta-archive of CLARIN, and gives us status as a Metadata Providing Centre (C-centre).


The archiving software was developed by The Language Archive (TLA) at Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. TLA also develop ELAN, an advanced tool for time-aligned multimedia annotations.
