This interactive virtual workshop seeks to address the growing need. It will explore a broad scope of issues related to digital language archives -- digital libraries that preserve and provide online access to language data. The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners, educators, and students from around the world who are currently working or are interested in working in different areas related to collecting, archiving, curating, organizing, and providing access to born-digital or digitized language data, and evaluation of digital language archives. Workshop participants will interact and explore solutions to facilitating discovery of language materials in digital archives, effective and efficient access to them, and reuse of this rich data. The workshop will help foster collaborations among information professionals; library and information science, linguistics, data science, computer science, and humanities researchers; educators; representatives of language communities (including indigenous communities, refugees, speakers of under-resourced languages); and other interested audiences. The event is expected to become the first one in the series of regular workshops focused on the digital language archives.
