the tool is used for semantic registration or semantic mapping purposes


Nederlab, online laboratory for humanities research on Dutch text collections


A user-friendly and tool-enriched open access web interface that that aims at containing all digitized texts relevant for the Dutch national heritage and the history of Dutch language and culture (c. 800 - present).


There is growing amount of on-line information available in RDF format as Linked Open Data (LOD) and a strong community very actively promotes its use. The publication of information as LOD is also considered an important signal that the publisher is actively searching for information sharing with a world full of new potential users. Added advantages of LOD, when well used, are the explicit semantics and high interoperability. But the problematic modelling by non-expert users offsets these advantages, which is a reason why modelling systems as CMDI are used. The CMDI2RDF project aims to bring the LOD advantages to the CMDI world and make the huge store of CMDI information available to new groups of users and at the same time offer CLARIN a powerful tool to experiment with new metadata discovery possibilities.


CLARIN Vocabulary Service


The CLARIN Vocabulary Service is a running instance of the OpenSKOS exchange and publication platform for SKOS vocabularies. This OpenSKOS instance currently publishes SKOS versions of three vocabularies:


CCR – CLARIN Concept Registry


The CCR is a concept registry according to the W3C SKOS recommendation. It was chosen by CLARIN to serve as a semantic registry to overcome semantic interoperability issues with


DSS: Dutch Ships and Sailors

ISOcat is data category registry according to the ISO12620 model. It was chosen by CLARIN to serve as a semantic registry to overcome semantic interoperability issues with CMDI metadata and different annotation tag sets used for linguistic annotation.
