Documenting endangered languages has risen in importance as half or more of the world’s languages have the potential to become moribund or extinct within this century.
A new generation of documentary language materials is being created in mostly digital formats, while older “legacy” materials are also being digitized. Digital archiving is
necessary to preserve these materials for the long-term, but holds particular challenges, requiring sound technical implementation, planning, and infrastructure. This thesis
develops the TAPS Checklist, which was intended to help depositors of language materials assess digital language archives based on (1) areas of special concern to
linguists and language communities (Target and Access) and (2) recommended best practices for the long-term preservation of digital information (Preservation and
Sustainability). TAPS was tested at nine digital archives. Results suggest that digital language archives are providing necessary services, but many lack resources for adequate
preservation planning and for ensuring sustainability.
