Information about Curation Dashboard

Curation Dashboard is a service originally developed by the technical team of the ACDH-CH hosted and maintained by CLARIN-ERIC. Its goal is to support CMD metadata authors and curators to improve quality of metadata for language resources. More information:

Structure and functionality

Curation Dashboard consists of three modules:

  • Core Module
  • Web Module
  • Link Checker Module

Core Module

This module does the actual analysis of individual CMD profiles, records and whole collections according to a number of quality criteria and generates reports and statistics which help discover potential problems that cause a lower metadata quality.

The reports are re-generated regularly (twice weekly) on the most recent dump of CMDI records as collected by the CLARIN-VLO harvester.

Web Module

This is the user facing web application. It offers four main functions:

Link Checker Module (Stormychecker)

It checks constantly and repeatedly (with respecting the robots.txt files) all the URLs contained in metadata records of the collections. Checking means sending HEAD and/or GET requests to URLs and saving the results (just the request meta-information, the headers, not the payload itself) in a database. Core module later uses these results to generate statistics and takes them into consideration when assessing the quality of the metadata. Additionally, the results are also used by the CLARIN metadata catalogue, the VLO, to indicate the availability of a resource.

This module is maintained in a separate code-base.
