The ALL Project

With a grant from the NSF National Science Digital Library Initiative (NSDL-0333530; 2003-2005), this two-year collaboration with the Rosetta Project resulted in the creation of a digital library of educational information on approximately 4000 languages and supported the development of a browsable, searchable Directory of Linguists.

The Directory listing currently stands at nearly 20,000 names, records which include subfield and language specialties, current affiliations, publications, and in many cases, contact information, all to facilitate research and strengthen our global networking capabilities.

Browse listings, add or update your own record on the main page of Directory.
