If people are looking for language information or other resources for
lesser-known languages, e.g. if needing to find references they can use in
requesting a tag, one resource that may be useful is the OLAC catalog (Open
Language Archive Community). The catalog can be queried from the Linguist
List site:


Archives that currently have items catalogued using the OLAC protocol or
