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 https://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.

The course material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. BCS-1653380. The course is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license. At the moment, the course is available only in English; next steps are to translate the curriculum into Spanish and Portuguese to make it more accessible to AILLA’s Latin American audience. We invite translation into other languages as well; for this reason, we chose the CC BY-SA 4.0 license.
