Collection titles

Module by: Joseph Grimes. E-mail the author

Summary: Every collection has a title and a short title.

Every collection has a title that is useful for other linguists, like Austronesian or Southern Utoaztecan. The title indicates the spread of languages you are investigating.

You prefix your Wordcorr ID to the title with a hyphen. This heads off a potential bad situation where thirty Wordcorr users have thirty different collections all called “Austronesian,” and some of them are trying to collaborate with others.

Wordcorr asks you for a short title for the collection, which also carries your Wordcorr ID prefix. This usually makes a good file name too, when you convert your Wordcorr database to an XML file for safekeeping or collaboration with another linguist. So a JG-Austronesian collection might have a short title like JG-AN that would readily identify it to any specialist in Austronesian languages.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
