The National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics Digital Archive NINDA is a language resource platform that complies with international standards for digital humanities and open science, encompassing text, images, audio, video, and linguistic survey data. This platform is based on the content management system Omeka S, which facilitates the adoption of global standards in digital humanities, utilizing world standards such as IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) and LOD (Linked Open Data). Specifically, as case studies, the focus will be on the online exhibition on NINDA of lexical resources for Ryukyuan languages, Bible corpora in Japanese, Okinawan, and Ainu from the Edo and Meiji periods, and images of documentary materials related to the history of the Japanese language. The presentation will discuss how these technologies are integrated to enhance the accessibility, discoverability, interoperability, reusability, and sustainability of valuable data for language education and research.
