Search and Find ELRA LRs on Google Dataset Search and ELG LT Platform
ELRA is happy to announce that all the Language Resources from its Catalogue can now be searched and found on Google Dataset Search and on the ELG Language Technology platform developed within the European Language Grid project.
In order to allow the indexing by Google Dataset Search, ELRA has updated the code generating the catalogue pages. The code developed follows the schema.org standard and is publicly available in JSON format so that it can be used for other harvesting purposes.
The ELRA Catalogue is already indexed and harvested by famous repositories and archives such as OLAC (Open Language Archives Community), CLARIN Virtual Language Observatory and META-SHARE.
For 25 years now, ELRA has been distributing Language Resources to support research and development in various fields of Human Language Technology. The indexing on both Google Dataset Search and the ELG LT Plaform is increasing ELRA Catalogue’s visibility, making the LRs known to new visitors from the Human Language Technologies, Artificial Intelligence and other related fields.
