Welcome to the OLAC-General mailing list, a moderated list for the
Open Language Archives Community (OLAC, www.language-archives.org).

OLAC is an international partnership of institutions and individuals who
are creating a worldwide virtual library of language resources by:

* developing consensus on best current practice for the digital archiving of
  language resources, and
* developing a network of interoperating repositories and services for
  housing and accessing such resources.

The mailing list home page and the public list archive are available at
http://lists.linguistlist.org/archives/olac-general.html.  If you don't
wish to be on this list, send a "SIGNOFF OLAC-GENERAL" command to
LISTSERV at LISTSERV.LINGUISTLIST.ORG, or email sb at ldc.upenn.edu.

In addition to OLAC-General, there is also an unmoderated technical mailing
list for people who are implementing OLAC-conformant archives.  The list is
called OLAC-Implementers, and has open membership.  The homepage of this
list is: http://lists.linguistlist.org/archives/olac-implementers.html.

A page of implementation notes is available at:
Version 0.3 of the OLAC metadata schema has just been posted there.

Many thanks to the great folks at LINGUIST for hosting our lists!

Steven Bird and Gary Simons
