After several years of development, we are almost ready to start using our new data archiving system for The Language Archive. This system will replace the current archiving tools, such as the metadata browser and LAMUS. We are planning to start migrating the data and metadata to this new system from the 29th of January onwards. The migration will take some time, we estimate between one and two weeks. Access to the archived data via the current system will remain possible during most of the migration trajectory, except for one or two days at the end. Archiving new materials with LAMUS however will not be possible from the 29th of January onwards for the duration of the migration. A replacement for LAMUS for archiving new materials will be an integral part of the new system and can be used from the moment that we have completed the migration. We are still finalising manuals and documentation for the new system and will publish these materials as soon as possible.
