The DAM-LR (Distributed Access Management for Language Resources) project aims at virtually integrating various European language resource archives that allow users to navigate and operate in a single unified domain of language resources. This type of integration introduces Grid technology to the humanities disciplines and forms a federation of archives. It is the basis for establishing a research infrastructure for language resources which will finally enable eHumanities. Currently, the complete architecture is designed based on a few well-known components and some components have already been tested. Based on the technological insights gathered and due to discussions within the international DELAMAN (Digital Endangered Languages and Music Archives Network) network the ethical and organizational basis for such a federation is defined.
Date of Conference: Dec. 2006
