Language Archive Cologne
The Language Archive Cologne (LAC) is part of the Data Center for the Humanities (DCH) at the University of Cologne. The LAC provides archive services for audio-visual research data in the humanities with a focus on endangered languages and endangered oral literature traditions. It supports research, learning and teaching with high quality and dependable digital resources.
The archive facilitates free and open online access to research data. It does this by preserving digital audio and video data, annotations, and other digital language data in the long term, and by promoting and disseminating these resources.
The LAC promotes open and sustainable practices in the use of digital language data in the humanities and provides technical advice to the research community, and supports the deployment of digital technologies in research and teaching.
