SynopsisKaipuleohone is a digital ethnographic archive for audio and video recordings as well as photographs, notes, dictionaries, transcriptions, and other materials related to small and endangered languages. The archive was established by the Department of Linguistics at the University of Hawai'i to ensure that priceless and unique research recordings will be digitized, described and safely housed in the longterm. Kaipuleohone conforms to international archiving standards for digital archives. Audio files are stored at high resolution and the metadata conforms to the Open Language Archives Community and Dublin Core. All digital files are curated by the Library system at the University of Hawai'i's DSpace repository, ScholarSpace. Every item in the collection has access conditions specified by the depositor on the deposit form. Kaipuleohone means a 'gourd of sweet words' and we are very grateful to Laiana Wong for suggesting this name and for allowing us to use it as the name of this archive.
