Abstract

This chapter will present a collective effort to compile a comprehensive repository of accessible Chinese language resources that can be used online, licensed for use, or accessed in published form. The compendium will be presented in three parts according to each language resource’s type of accessibility, which is a direct consequence of the type of relevant information provided for each resource. Within each accessibility type, the resources were then further divided according to the following resource types: integrated resources, corpora, lexical resources, and wordnet/ontology. We believe that this four-way classification system will facilitate intuitive searches. However, this design will make it difficult to search for a resource within the same class due to having to rely on the alphabetic order of the titles of the resources. Lastly, it is important for our readers to bear in mind that such a repository is bound to be incomplete given the scale and distributional nature of the resources and the productivity of new resource construction. We plan to post this compendium online to allow easier access and provide updates in the future.
