DiO – DictObserver

Collecting Information on Lexicographical Resources

The DictObserver (DiO) is a project collecting information on digital lexicographic resources. It is not aiming at exhaustiveness but will initially focus on relevant data in particular areas and/or languages.

The project is highly experimental in nature and tightly intertwined with the ACDH Knowledge Hub which is aiming at the creation of a pool of data for digitally driven research in the humanities. One of the main issues at hand is maintainability. Institutionally, DiO will be run by the ACDH. Technically, it is built on a framework providing tools to automatically verify the collected links.

The project is part of the ACDH’s activities in transnational lexicographic endeavours such as ENeL (European Network of e-Lexicography), DARIAH-EU (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities), and CLARIN (Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure). It is designed as a collaborative effort.

The data available in this interface was edited by means of the Viennese Lexicographic Editora freely available XML Editor for lexicographic data.
