The Humanities Lab Archive offers secure, long-term storage of structured language data in digital form. Furthermore, the Humanities Lab Archive can function as a collaborative workspace, where a group of researchers can download, enrich, and upload data and metadata.
Metadata are publicly visible, browsable and searchable through the archive browser, while access to data may be restricted. With this setup, other researchers can still search for relevant data without risking circulation of sensitive data. The user may then request specific access depending on restrictions. See the user info for more information.
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.
