Today's digital research infrastructures target a variety of user groups. A key task to achieve acceptance and active participation among them are both user-friendly and machine-readable interfaces to digital resources. This is especially the case for highly integrated infrastructures like the CLARIN project. The Canonical Text Service Protocol CTS is an established system in document based Digital Humanities that covers many of associated problems, like dealing with varying levels of text granularity, persistent identification, address resolution and simple interfaces for an integration in various automatic work flows. The paper shows the advantages of integrating a CTS instance into CLARIN and also demonstrates additional benefits of this CTS implementation in form of built-in text mining techniques.
