The Humanities Lab corpus offers secure, long-term storage of structured language data in digital form. Furthermore, the Corpus Server 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 corpus 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.
The Lab is a Knowledge Centre 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.
