Welcome to the E-MELD Tools and Resources area. Here you will be able to examine tools that we are creating for digitizing and archiving language data. This is especially important for field linguists interested in preserving their language data for long term community accessibility. These tools are still under development. In line with the goals of the E-MELD project, these tools are freely available. We encourage you to try them and we would appreciate your comments or suggestions.
