CLAR(IAH/IN) deposition centre pilot for language resources in the Netherlands

The objective of CLARIN is to realize a research infrastructure that provides data and tools to researchers in humanities and social sciences. For language related data, currently three Dutch CLARIN centers are active: INL, MPI/TLA and the MI. In view of the fact that funding agencies are increasingly introducing mandates to archive data sets in publically accessible the Meertens Institute will, in this pilot-project, upgrade its deposition possibilities both in the interest of its own researchers and of the Dutch CLARIN community.
