[Abstract] As the world's linguistic diversity continues to decline, researchers, activists and language communities have looked to language documentation, archiving and revitalization as responses and possible solutions. This presentation will discuss the present state of these activities in the light of experience over the past 20 years, and in particular how they are dealing with increased community participation, the nature of the actual language documentation materials being created, the changing roles of archives, appropriate uses of technologies, and how well they are together serving today's emphasis on ethical and effective support for communities as well as better linguistic understandings.
