D5.3 Prêt-à-LLOD Language Resource Discovery Portal
This document reports on the Linghub language resource discovery portal, the software deliverable developed as part of task T5.3 (“Repositories for Resources and Metadata”) which concludes the delivery of work package 5 in M37 (July 2021), with one month delay to the original plan. The task fits in the challenge 1 described in the project proposal, which is about the discovery of language resources, using homogeneous and expressive metadata from different language resource repositories, giving information about availability, technical quality and content of language resources and combining them into a single search interface.
The objectives linked to the challenge and work plan were met through the delivery of the platform. We will describe first these objectives and main points of the work plan, and how they are tackled in the platform. We then present the software which Linghub is based on, and the customizations that were made to bring the platform up to the standards desired. Next, we list the resources harvested and imported in Linghub, coming from different repositories and sources. Then we describe the exploration of an approach to the sustainability of data through a peer-to-peer decentralized storage infrastructure and the iLOD dataset created as a result of this task. Finally, we touch on the long term remaining tasks concerning the maintenance of the platform.
