Two of these messages mentioned OLAC, the Open Language Archives Community.
The Linguistic Data Consortium now documents all of its corpora using the
OLAC metadata set. Other language resource institutions are involved,
including ATILF, DFKI, ELRA, LINGUIST, SIL, and more than a dozen others.
The benefits of using OLAC metadata are that it is very easy to use and
the infrastructure for indexing and search is already in place. Please see
www.language-archives.org for full details.
