UdS Fedora Commons Repository (UdSFedora) Save as PDFShow print view

Welcome to Fedora Commons Repository of the Saarland University (UdS) CLARIN-D centre. In collaboration with other centres in the CLARIN-D consortium, the UdS CLARIN-D centre enables eHumanities by providing a service for hosting and processing language resources (notably corpora) for members of the research community. The UdS CLARIN-D centre thus contributes to the overall CLARIN mission of lifting the fragmentation of language resources by assisting members of the research community in preparing language materials in such a way that easy discovery is ensured, interchange is facilitated and preservation is enabled by enriching such materials with meta-information, transforming them into sustainable formats and hosting them. A subsidiary commitment of the UdS CLARIN-D centre lies in promoting the education and training of young researchers. This includes the organization of training events, gathering relevant educational materials and contributing to the development of higher education curricula in the eHumanities. We have an explicit mission to archive language resources especially multilingual corpora (parallel, comparable) and corpora including specific registers, both collected by associated researchers as well as researchers who are not affiliated with us. We provide metadata of our centre's resources and tools in Dublin Core and CMDI format. The Virtual Language Observatory harvests our metadata and provides a faceted search interface for them. We host the GRUG Treebank (Georgian, Russian, Ukrainian, German parallel Treebank) on our Server.

    You can search the content of the UdS CLARIN-D centre repository using two interfaces. The recommended search interface is the facetted search provided by the Virtual Langauge Observatory (VLO). It provides a user-friendly interface to the resources. It also provides search over a large number of repositories all over the world. There is also a very succinct native Fedora Commons search interface. It provides a facetted search over all metadata fields Fedora Commons maintains. To go to the resource itself, you need another three mouse-clicks: Click on the link in the column labelled PID, Click then on "View the Datastreams list for this Object", and finally on "view content" in the row labelled LINK. As data user you agree to the Terms of Use of the repository. Moreover, some contents can have restrictions regarding access and use that are stated in the CMDI metadata and on the landing page of the respective resource. Data Users must acknowledge and cite data sources properly in all publications and outputs.
