The Collections data domain encompasses language and text-based collections of written, spoken, or signed language and texts that were written based on scientific criteria. This includes text collections and corpora, mono- and multimodal recordings of language, as well as language- and text-related experimental or measurement data. The collections are provided in the distributed infrastructure of Text+ by various certified data centers, each with its own specializations.

For knowledge transfer and assistance with questions related to Collections and their integration, the Text+ Helpdesk is the primary contact point. It also serves as a contact address for projects wishing to integrate their research data into the Text+ infrastructure.

The data domain pays special attention to legal and ethical issues, serving as a point of contact within the consortium and beyond. For instance, derived text formats that enable the exploration of copyrighted resources without violating copyright are a particular focus. Other priorities include the community-based development of software services and the topic of Linked Open Data.

Contact Persons
