520    "Thanks to ever-greater digital connectivity, interest in 
       oral traditions has grown beyond that of researcher and 
       research subject to include a widening pool of global 
       users. When new publics consume, manipulate and connect 
       with field recordings and digital cultural archives, their
       involvement raises important practical and ethical 
       questions. This volume explores the political 
       repercussions of studying marginalised languages; the role
       of online tools in ensuring responsible access to 
       sensitive cultural materials; and ways of ensuring that 
       when digital documents are created, they are not 
       fossilized as a consequence of being archived. Fieldwork 
       reports by linguists and anthropologists in three 
       continents provide concrete examples of overcoming 
       barrierś - ethical, practical and conceptual - in digital
       documentation projects. Oral Literature in the Digital Age
       is an essential guide and handbook for ethnographers, 
       field linguists, community activists, curators, archivists,
       librarians, and all who connect with indigenous 
       communities in order to document and preserve oral 
       traditions. Oral Literature in the Digital Age is part of 
       our World Oral Literature Series in conjunction with the 
       World Oral Literature Project."--Publisher's website.
