WO13: Issues On LRs Infrastructures
A number of metadata proposals appear to be relevant to establish a searchable and browsable domain of language resources so that users can easily discover suitable resources on the Web. These proposals differ in their approach, in their descriptive detail, in the set of linguistic data types supported by specific elements and the supporting tools. The IMDI initiative, in particular, has worked out not only a set for (multimedia) corpora, but also for lexica. All initiatives have declared their commitment towards interoperability where Dublin Core will play a role in the near future. For the long term we foresee much effort to make the metadata sets compliant with the trends of the Semantic Web and to allow an increasing re-usage of existing sub-schemas and data categories that will probably be formulated with RDF.
