trinityCLARIN works with various communities to collaborate on research projects, to find out requirements for language technology services, and to support the curation of linguistic data.
CLARIN has embarked on a number of activities relating to working with oral history archive materials. The kick-off was during the 18-19 April 2016 workshop in Oxford. Goal of the workshop was to start with a number of activities relating to working with oral history archive materials, including:

  • extending and maintaining a registry of oral history collections in Europe,
  • making oral history collections visible via the Virtual Language Observatory,
  • a 'hackathon' to work on mini-projects with oral history and develop case studies of good practice,
  • publishing how-to guides including screencast videos on how to transcribe, align and search oral collections,
  • developing support services to make it easier to find and use Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools in oral history research,
  • development of new collaborative projects, including crowdsourcing elements to involve the public in transcriptions.
