    • Historical information: In the mid-2000s, Andrew Garrett (UC Berkeley) and Susan Gehr (Karuk tribal linguist, archivist, and language program coordinator) worked together to create an online searchable version of William Bright and Gehr's "Karuk dictionary" (2005), in a website hosted by the UC Berkeley Linguistics Department. In 2008 and 2009, Gehr and Karuk language program coordinator Ruth Rouvier invited Garrett to work with Karuk community members on data management and archiving for language documentation. From this emerged a Karuk language documentation project involving collaboration among Berkeley linguists, the Karuk Tribe, and Karuk tribal members. The project was led at Berkeley by Line Mikkelsen and Andrew Garrett (and initially Alice Gaby, who subsequently left Berkeley); other participants included Karuk first-language speakers Lucille Albers, Sonny Davis, Vina Smith, and Charlie Thom Sr.; second-language speakers, learners, and teachers Tamara Alexander, LuLu Alexander, Crystal Richardson, and Florrine Super; and UC Berkeley graduate students Erik Hans Maier and Clare Sandy. Active documentation began in 2010 and continued through at least 2017. (Elders Thom, Albers, and Smith passed away in 2013, 2014, and 2015, respectively.) Among other research activities, this project involved extensive work with texts, including the creation of digital versions of legacy texts (e.g. all texts published in William Bright's 1957 "The Karok language"), transcribing new texts, and analyzing texts. The text analysis also involved preparation of a treebank of syntactically parsed Karuk sentences.
    • Scope and content: The collection consists mainly of field recordings made by Berkeley faculty and students with Karuk elders as well as younger language learners and second-language speakers. Most of the items in the collection are organized as follows: recordings made on a single research trip (on one or more days) are bundled together as digital assets of a single item. One item in the collection contains grant applications (e.g. for a National Science Foundation grant); another item contains handouts and posters from conference presentations by Berkeley project participants. The field recordings include a wide range of texts, text types, and methodologies (elicitation, free texts, responses to stimuli, discussion of legacy recordings); they cover a variety of linguistic topics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics).
