Item Summary

Title: Kaipuleohone: The University of Hawai‘i Digital Ethnographic Archive
Issue Date: 02 Mar 2013
Description: Kaipuleohone is the University of Hawai‘i digital archive for audio and video recordings as well as photographs, notes, dictionaries, transcriptions, and other materials related to small and endangered languages. It was founded in 2007 to address the need for a dedicated repository for language data collected by researchers affiliated with UH. Since its inception the archive has digitized, described, and safely housed several hundred language recordings, including the personal collections of renowned linguists Derek Bickerton and Robert Blust. Kaipuleohone conforms to international standards for digital archives and is a member of the Open Language Archives Community. Digital files are stored at high resolution and are curated by ScholarSpace, the DSpace repository of UHM. Metadata conforms to the standards of OLAC, Open Archives Initiative, and the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative.

This poster presents four aspects of Kaipuleohone: the history of the archive, the details of the current collection, the archive’s ties to the ongoing academic program at UH and the Language Documentation Training Center, and future plans to expand the archive’s outreach mission to language communities in the Asia-Pacific region.
