Launch of AILLA's new repository and website

Today, Indigenous Peoples' Day, October 9, 2017, marks the public launch of the newly migrated and updated Archive of the Indigenous Languages of Latin America. AILLA is a digital language archive of recordings, texts, and other multimedia materials in and about the indigenous languages of Latin America. AILLA's mission is to preserve these materials and make them available to Indigenous Peoples, researchers, and other friends of these languages now and for generations to come.

AILLA's Technology Upgrade

We are pleased to announce that after a very successful fundraiser, we are proceeding with our technology upgrade. The work began in late March 2015, and it will continue during the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters. What does this mean for AILLA's users and depositors?
