California Language Archive

The California Language Archive (CLA) is the product of a collaboration between the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages and the Berkeley Language Center (BLC), both archives at the University of California, Berkeley.

The Survey of California and Other Indian Languages is a research center in the Department of Linguistics, University of California, Berkeley, supporting the documentation, study, and revitalization of the indigenous languages of California and the Americas. It maintains a major archive of field notes and other documentary materials, accessible in 1311 Dwinelle Hall and catalogued in the California Language Archive; some material is digitized and available online.

Founded in 1994, the Berkeley Language Center (BLC) is a department in the Division of Arts and Humanities of the College of Letters and Science. The BLC’s mission is to support the learning and teaching of heritage and foreign languages on the Berkeley campus and, where appropriate, in the University of California system.
