Paris, France, December 10, 2014/

*ELRA and LDC partner to implement ISLRN process and assign identifiers 
to all the Language Resources in their catalogues.*

Following the meeting of the largest NLP organizations, the NLP12, and 
their endorsement of the *International Standard Language Resource 
Number (ISLRN)*, *ELRA* and *LDC* partnered to implement the ISLRN 
process and to assign identifiers to all the Language Resources (LRs) in 
their catalogues. The ISLRN web portal was designed to enable the 
assignment of unique identifiers as a service free of charge for all 
Language Resource providers. To enhance the use of ISLRN, ELRA and LDC 
have collaborated to provide the ISLRN 13-digit ID to all the Language 
Resources distributed in their respective catalogues. Anyone who is 
searching the ELRA and LDC catalogues can see that each Language 
Resource is now identified by both the data centre ID and the ISLRN 
number. All providers and users of such LRs should refer to the latter 
in their own publications and whenever referring to the LR.

ELRA and LDC will continue their joint involvement in ISLRN through 
active participation in this web service.

Visit the ELRA and LDC catalogues, respectively at 
http://catalogue.elra.info <http://catalogue.elra.info/> and 
https://catalog.ldc.upenn.edu <https://catalog.ldc.upenn.edu/>

*Background*

The *International Standard Language Resource Number (ISLRN)* aims to 
provide unique identifiers using a standardised nomenclature, thus 
ensuring that LRs are correctly identified, and consequently, recognised 
with proper references for their usage in applications within R&D 
projects, product evaluation and benchmarking, as well as in documents 
and scientific papers. Moreover, this is a major step in the networked 
and shared world that Human Language Technologies (HLT) has become: 
unique resources must be identified as such and meta-catalogues need a 
common identification format to manage data correctly.

The ISLRN portal can be accessed from http://www.islrn.org,
