OLAC Working Group on Metadata

Statement of Purpose

The OLAC Working Group on Metadata will develop OLAC standards, best practices, and notes concerning OLAC metadata.

In scope are those properties of language resources which the whole community needs in order to describe and discover language resources. Out of scope are descriptors which are only of interest to specialized sub-communities.

Note: This working group operates according to the OLAC Working Group Process.
