The DOBES Archive is part of The Language Archive (TLA) which is located at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen. TLA is specialized in archiving and preservation of linguistic recordings and other types of data as well as in development of linguistic tools and archiving tools. The DOBES programme played an important role in the development of TLA, both from a technological as well as an organizational perspective. The following pages describe the responsible people for the DOBES archive, the agreements that play a role within the DOBES framework, the ways to access the archive, the strategies for long-term persistence of the archived material, some of the tools that were developed around the DOBES programme and the regional LAT archives that have been set up around the world.
