1. Describe the project

Metadata overview

The project must be described according to the ELG schema and comply at least with the minimal version. The metadata elements that you need to provide for the project comprise a set of elements organized (for presentation purposes) into the following groups:


Example 1

Published at:

Example 2

European Language Grid

Published at:

2. Register the project at ELG

The current release of ELG offers two options for registering a catalogue item:

3. Manage and submit for publication

Through the “My items” page you can access your metadata record (see Manage your items) and edit it until you are satisfied. You can then submit it for publication, in line with the publication lifecycle defined for ELG metadata records.

At this stage, the metadata record can no longer be edited and is only visible to you and to us, the ELG platform administrators.

Before it is published, your submission undergoes a validation process, which is described in detail at Validate a “metadata-only record”.

Once approved, it will appear on the ELG catalogue and you will receive a notification email.
