CLARIN is a large-scale pan-European collaborative effort to create, coordinate and make language resources and technology available and readily usable. CLARIN offers scholars the tools to allow computer-aided language processing, addressing one or more of the multiple roles language plays (i.e. carrier of cultural content and knowledge, instrument of communication, component of identity and object of study) in the humanities and social sciences.
CLARIN is now operating as an official European research infrastructure. An EC-funded project, under the 7th Framework Program, conducted a preparatory phase project to scope out the tasks involved in building the infrastructure. The Oxford Text Archive was one of the repositories and service providers which continues to work with other partners to develop strong national centres which can interoperate and provide shared services. Current work is in the areas of promoting user engagement, access and authorization infrastructure, persistent identifiers, registries of resources and services, federated content search, shared metadata services and standards for language resources and technologies.
