The Archive of the Indigenous Languages of Latin America (AILLA) is delighted to announce the launch of a free online course called Archiving for the Future: Simple Steps for Archiving Language Documentation Collections, available at archivingforthefuture.teachable.com. The course is a resource to aid people of all backgrounds in organizing born-digital and digitized language materials and data for deposit into any digital repository (not just AILLA) for long-term preservation and accessibility.

AILLA and the rest of UT-Austin will be closed on Monday, September 7, 2020 in observance of the Labor Day holiday.

AILLA is pleased to announce that some products of a recent NEH-funded pilot project are now publicly available. After adding over 350 PDF files to the MesoAmerican Languages Collection of Kathryn Josserand, most Mixtec-language audio recordings in that collection now have a scanned image of the handwritten transcriptions produced by Josserand and her collaborators.
