The ISLE Meta Data Initiative (IMDI) is a metadata standard to describe multi-media and multi-modal language resources. The standard provides interoperability for browsable and searchable corpus structures and resource descriptions. All TLA archiving tools (Arbil, LAMUS, etc.) are compatible with IMDI.

The full specifications can be found in the documents below.

The web-based Browsable Corpus maintained by TLA allows you to browse through IMDI corpora and search for language resources.
