Title Body
CLARIN Legal Information Platform

The platform aims to introduce researchers with basic notions related to the legislative and licensing framework in Europe on Copyright and Data Protection:

  • Introduction to Copyright and Related Rights
  • Licensing Practice
  • Personal Data Protection

It also includes proposals for:

  • Further reading/Bibliography on Legal and Ethical Issues
  • Useful links on Legal and Ethical Issues
CLARIN Depositing Services

One of the fundamental services of the CLARIN infrastructure is making sure that language resources can be archived and made available to the community in a reliable manner. To help researchers to store their resources (e.g. corpora, lexica, audio and video recordings, annotations, grammars, etc.) in a sustainable way, many of the CLARIN centres offer a depositing service. They are willing to store the resources in their repository and assist with the technical and organisational details. This has a wide range of advantages:

  • Long-term archiving: a storage guarantee can be given for a long period (up to 50 years in some cases)
  • Resources can be cited easily with a persistent identifier.
  • The resources and their metadata will be integrated into the infrastructure, making it possibe to search them efficiently.
  • Password-protected resources can be made available via an institutional login.
  • Once resources are integrated in the CLARIN infrastructure, they can be analyzed and enriched more easily with various linguistic tools (e.g. automated part-of-speech taggingphonetic alignment or audio/video analysis).
CLARIN Resource Families

The aim of the CLARIN Resource Families initiative is to provide a user-friendly overview of the available language resources in the CLARIN infrastructure for researchers from digital humanities, social sciences and human language technologies. The overviews are organized according to the types of data in the resources and include listings sorted by language.

The listings include the most important metadata and brief descriptions, such as resource size, text sources, time periods, annotations and licences as well as links to download pages and concordancers, whenever available. In addition to the resources found in the CLARIN infrastructure, CLARIN Resource Families provides an overview of other existing valuable language resources which have not yet been integrated in the infrastructure.

CLARIN Resource Families also provides hyperlinks to other relevant materials such as the thematic CLARIN workshops and tutorials and their accompanying videolectures, as well as a list of key publications on the resources surveyed.
