Title The CLARIN Research Infrastructure: Resources and Tools for eHumanities Scholars
Authors Erhard Hinrichs and Steven Krauwer
Abstract CLARIN is the short name for the Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure, which aims at providing easy and sustainable access for scholars in the humanities and social sciences to digital language data and advanced tools to discover, explore, exploit, annotate, analyse or combine them, independent of where they are located. CLARIN is in the process of building a networked federation of European data repositories, service centers and centers of expertise, with single sign-on access for all members of the academic community in all participating countries. Tools and data from different centers will be interoperable so that data collections can be combined and tools from different sources can be chained to perform complex operations to support researchers in their work. Interoperability of language resources and tools in the federation of CLARIN Centers is ensured by adherence to TEI and ISO standards for text encoding, by the use of persistent identifiers, and by the observance of common protocols. The purpose of the present paper is to give an overview of language resources, tools, and services that CLARIN presently offers.
