description: Speech & Language Data Repository (SLDR) is a Trusted Data Repository offering labs and scholars a free-of-charge service for sharing their oral/linguistic data and archiving it with the help of procedures compliant with the OAIS model for long-term preservation. Its entire storage is referenced in international repositories such as OLAC (Open Language Archives Community) and CLARIN Virtual Language Observatory (VLO). Currently, packages are distributed via the TGE-Adonis grid, now integrated in Huma-Num, hosted by CC-IN2P3 and preserved on the platform of CINES, an institutional archive beneficiary of the Data Seal of Approval.
In the framework of the ORTOLANG project (Open Resources and Tools for Language), a consortium of French linguistic research labs is planning to set up a network of CLARIN centres relying on SLDR and CNRTL respectively for the preservation and sharing of oral and text resources. Now engaged with the CNRTL and Nanterre Orléans Centre in building ORTOLANG, SLDR continues its work of gathering and sharing language data. All services currently offered will remain part of the new platform.
