Endangered Languages Archive

The Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) is a digital repository for preserving multimedia collections of endangered languages from all over the world, making them available for future generations.

ELAR’s mission is to:

  • provide a safe long-term repository for language documentation collections
  • train and support depositors in collection creation and preservation
  • make collections accessible free of charge to researchers, communities, and the public
  • support users in discovering and accessing recordings

ELAR was a founding member of the CLARIN-UK consortium in 2015, when it was based at SOAS, University of London. ELAR is now based in Berlin.
