The ELRA Catalogue of Language Resources at OLAC

In the framework of its ongoing collaborative work with the OLAC community
and in order to improve its compliance with OLAC standards, ELRA is pleased
to announce that the OLAC archive of its Catalogue of Language Resources
has been updated. According to OLAC standards, the ELRA Catalogue archive
achieves the maximum rate of 5 stars on the OLAC scale.

The ELRA Catalogue has been exported into OLAC standards by means of
associating the ELRA metadata for describing Language Resources with the
OLAC metadata. Daily updates are performed through the automatic harvesting
of the ELRA Catalogue which is carried out by the OLAC server.

With this work, ELRA aims at rendering its catalogue more visible to the
wider community and it contributes to sharing information on Language
Resources through standardized metadata sets.
