LEXUS is a web based, collaborative lexicon-authoring tool currently being developed by the The Language Archive. LEXUS allows the creation and upload of lexical databases with multi-media resources, enabling users to specify custom designs to present the lexical entries and fields together with these multi-media resources.

LEXUS is no longer actively developed by TLA. See this post for details.
