    • Historical information: This collection consists of materials produced by students of the graduate-level field methods course in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley between September 2008 and May 2009, with some additional materials from one student extending through September 2009. The course was co-taught by professors Alice Gaby and Lev Michael, and the language consultant was Moa Imchen. All other listed contributors were students in the course.
    • Scope and content: Sound recordings of elicitation and texts, transcriptions, student assignments. The collection is organized into five series: Series I, sound recordings of in-class and small-group elicitation sessions, arranged chronologically (many with transcriptions in .trs files openable in Transcriber); Series II, clipped sound recordings of lexical items (with relations to the original recordings from which they were extracted); Series III, interlinear texts (an assignment for each student); and Series IV, remaining student assignments. Most file bundles containing sound recordings contain content descriptions based on metadata spreadsheets maintained by each student in the course.
