Abstract

The Institutional Repositories (IRs) based on Open Archives represent one of the main free access tools for the results of scientific research, and their diffusion is continuously growing. In fact, more and more universities and research centers rely on IRs in order to optimize the management and diffusion of scientific work. During an industrial project aimed to the creation of the Analytic Sound Archive of Sardinia, was born the idea to create an Institutional Archive to solve the problems of organization and availability of information. The Archive would contain a linguistically annotated corpus to preserve, enhance and support the oral traditions in the Sardinian language. The distinctive feature of this work is the proposal of a new approach for formalization and management of knowledge using the tool DSpace (a Knowledge Management System typically used for the organization and management of text documents) to store, manage and query the electronic corpus made of audio clips. In this specific case we worked with a group of audio recordings in a corpus and linguistic information added to that corpus with annotations. The customization of the structures and interfaces of the chosen KMS, to ensure the availability and sharing of knowledge, are also closely tied to this research.
