This paper proposal presents an analysis of research involving a network of Open Archive Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) data-providers who engage in ethnolinguistic information-resource stewardship.
OLAC technical infrastructure needs to be build as three seperate interacting systems. Each system with a unique function related to data:
Harvesting, Enhancing, Engagement.
The first step in creating a useful interaction around archival records related to languages it to watch how users are behaving in current search.
This is a deep dive into the quality and coverage of one record in OLAC from the Crubadan project.
What is a PhysicalObject in the DCMIType vocabulary.
Is everything an archive? Are there limits to the term? How are linguists using the term?
A muse through the content of rights statements in considering PARADISEC OLAC records.
Testing Listings with OLAC XML code.
Considering changes to the OLAC validator.
Several examples of how OAI sets could be used or leveraged for use in OLAC.
