The creation of a Spanish Sign Language corpus has been, since 1995 until 2000, one of the main aims of our Sign Languages Research Group at the University of Vigo. This research has the aim of helping us in the description of LSE and developing tools for research: labeling, transcription, etc. We obtained language samples from 85 informants whose analysis raised several difficulties, both technical and sociolinguistic. At this stage, with renewed energy, we have taken up again our initial aims, crossing the technical, linguistic and sociological obstacles that had hindered our proposal to reach its end.  In our panel we will present, apart from the difficulties that we have encountered, the new proposals for solvingand overcoming them, thus, finally reaching our initial aim: to develop a public Spanish Sign Language corpus that could be consulted online.
