Currently, about 135,000 cultural heritage items from 22 collections are available to scholars, researchers, students and citizen-scientists from all disciplines, in particular humanities and social sciences. The records include books, periodicals, newspapers, manuscripts and speech audio in over 35 languages. 

As a result, researchers can now access high-quality cultural data and combine it with CLARIN’s advanced language-processing tools and services to conduct cutting-edge research, contributing to a truly multilingual European Research Area.
