This chapter presents several initiatives aimed at supporting various aspects of language documentation. The locus of these initiatives is the group of people associated with the Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (PARADISEC) and Resource Network for Linguistic Diversity (RNLD). Training researchers is critical both for maintaining their professionalism and for the benefit of the data recorded, and, ultimately, accessibility of the data for the people recorded and their descendants. The activities range from training in the use of computer-based tools for linguistic recording and analysis, through software tool development to the provision of an infrastructure for curation of linguistic data.

Keywords: language documentation; digital sources; software tools; curation; PARADISEC; RNLD; linguistic data
