The Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) at SOAS
The Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) at SOAS preserves and disseminates digital documentation of endangered languages around the world, especially (but not limited to) the outcomes of ELDP-funded projects. ELAR's recently re-launched website is designed specifically to suit the needs of endangered languages archiving, using "Web 2.0" methods to implement a nuanced access control system and make the site user-friendly for a range of audiences. We see the site not only as a source of valuable data but also as a forum for negotiation and exchange between depositors and users. There are currently 19 language documentations available, from a variety of regions including Alaska, Australia, India, Mexico, Siberia, Solomon Islands, and Tanzania. We are adding additional documentations to the site at the rate of approximately one each week.
